According to reports in the Palestinian media, there was a heavy exchange of fire after the forces surrounded a building, where a wanted terrorist was hiding. Later, the Palestinian Ministry of Health claimed that 4 people were killed and 20 others were injured in the incident. At this stage, no injuries were reported to the Israeli forces.

Two days before, it was reported that the security forces arrested 3 Hamas operatives in the Jenin refugee camp, including a senior member of the terrorist organization. During the operation, the fighters confiscated an M16 weapon that belonged to one of the arrested activists.

Another activist who was arrested is Wared Ashrif, originally from Jenin, identified with Hamas and was involved in shooting attacks and other terrorist activity with Abdullah Zubach and others. Another wanted person who was arrested is Moatzem Jaaitza.
