Terrorist Killed In Jenin After IDF Soldiers Attacked, 13 Arrested


JERUSALEM (VINnews) — A Palestinian terrorist was shot dead after explosive devices were thrown at Israeli forces during an arrest raid in Jenin early Wednesday.

The IDF said that troops entered Jenin to detain wanted terrorists and “several suspects hurled explosive devices at them, and shooting was also heard in the area.” The report added that soldiers returned fire and “hits were identified.”

Palestinian media reported that the terrorist, Mohammed Maher Marei, died of his wounds shortly after being shot.

In other operations in Judea and Samaria, IDF troops fired at a Palestinian terrorist who hurled stones at them during an arrest raid in al-Azza refugee camp near Bethlehem. Troops also seized illegal weapons in the camp.

In total, 13 Palestinians suspected of terror activities were detained overnight, the military said.

Israeli security forces have stepped up their operations in the West Bank following a deadly wave of terror attacks that left 19 people dead between mid-March and the beginning of May. Many of the raids have concentrated on the unstable Jenin area, from where several of the terrorists hailed.

On Tuesday night a terrorist attempted to stab policemen at the Majlis Gate of the Temple Mount compound. The attack failed and the terrorist fled but was later caught by Border Police and police forces in the region.
