Police publish footage of the raid in the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank this morning.

The headcam footage shows officers of the Yamam police counter-terrorism unit launching missiles and explosives at an apartment where a cell of Palestinian Islamic Jihad members were hiding.

Nine Palestinians — including several members of the PIJ cell, other gunmen, and at least one uninvolved civilian — were killed, and another 20 were wounded in the clashes that ensued.

Border Police chief Amir Cohen hails the Yamam officers for acting with “courage, composure, and professionalism while under heavy fire and risking your lives.”
