The Israel Defense Forces says it will be bolstering the West Bank with additional troops and police forces, following a series of attacks against civilians and Israeli troops in recent weeks.
The reinforcement will comprise IDF company and several Border Police units who will be deployed in the southern West Bank and near Jerusalem.
Earlier this year, the IDF deployed additional troops to the northern West Bank.
The IDF’s anti-terror offensive, mostly in the northern West Bank, was launched following a series of Palestinian attacks that killed 19 people earlier this year.
An Israeli man was killed in a terror attack last night, and another woman was killed in a suspected attack last month.
Four soldiers have also been killed in the West Bank in attacks and during the arrest operations.
With 25 people killed as a result of Palestinian attacks, 2022 is the deadliest year since 2015, when 29 people were killed.
