They also discovered military equipment and impounded four vehicles. Additionally, seven more wanted individuals were arrested in the villages of Duha, Askara, Beitot, Bardaleh, Al-Bireh, and Turmusaya.

In the refugee camp of Jilazun and the city of Ramallah, forces arrested two more wanted individuals, including a senior member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization. Additionally, the forces located and confiscated military equipment and weaponry. During the operations, suspects threw stones and hurled Molotov cocktails and explosive devices towards the soldiers, who responded with measures to disperse the protests.

The soldiers arrested three wanted individuals in the Deheishe refugee camp.

A Border Police officer sustained minor injuries and was evacuated for medical treatment at a hospital.

Three days ago, IDF forces arrested a senior Hamas member along with three other activists from the terrorist organization in the Jenin refugee camp. According to the IDF spokesperson's statement, the soldiers identified the wanted individuals as they exited the building. In response, the forces opened fire towards them, and hits were confirmed. Additionally, armed Palestinians shot and threw stones at the soldiers, who returned fire.

The arrested activists were involved in terrorist activities, shootings, and were engaged in handling explosives and planning additional attacks. Moreover, the apprehended wanted individuals were recently involved in extensive and expansive terrorist activities, including shootings, explosives, and furthering additional attacks. As a result of the incident in Jenin, a Palestinian, in his thirties, was brought to a Palestinian emergency room with injuries from a gunshot wound to his leg.
