The military says it has wrapped up an 18-hour counter-terrorism raid in the West Bank’s Far’a camp, during which troops killed a gunman and located a bomb-making lab.

At the bomb manufacturing site, the IDF says troops located more than 80 improvised explosive devices, along with barrels packed with explosive material. The bomb lab was later demolished.

Other weapons located inside a car were also seized, the IDF says.

Troops clashed with gunmen amid the raid, killing at least one yesterday morning. A drone strike was also carried out against two armed Palestinians, the army says.

Eight wanted Palestinians were detained amid the raid. The IDF says they were wanted over suspected involvement in terror activities.

No soldiers were hurt in the operation.
