Amid the IDF’s ongoing raid in the West Bank city of Jenin, troops demolished the home of Ahmed Barakat, a Palestinian terrorist involved in the killing of Meir Tamari in a shooting attack near the settlement of Hermesh in May 2023, the military says.

Barakat was killed in a drone strike in March.

Troops are clashing with gunmen amid the Jenin operation, which the IDF says began this morning following “intelligence information from the Shin Bet indicating the activity of armed terrorists affiliated with the Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organizations, and the presence of many terror infrastructures in the area.”

Palestinian health officials say seven people have been killed by the Israeli army amid the raid.
