As a result, several terrorists were identified as being injured.

The IDF and the police have reported that during the withdrawal of forces from the operation, five Border Police (MAGAV) soldiers were injured by the explosion of a grenade. Three of them were seriously injured, while two suffered light to moderate injuries. The soldiers have been evacuated to hospitals, and their families have been updated on their condition.

The Border Guard Commander, Brigadier General Brik Yitzhak, said: "Our fighters acted this morning with courage and determination to combat terrorism in Judea and Samaria. I wish a full recovery and swift healing to the Border Police soldiers who were injured in the fighting. We will continue to work jointly with the security forces to combat terrorism and protect the citizens of Israel. Every terrorist must know that if he tries to harm our forces, we will reach him and settle the score."
