Israeli security forces entered the Aqat Jaber refugee camp near Jericho in the West Bank on Monday to make arrests of suspected terrorists.
Palestinian media reported that gunfire was exchanged at the scene, as security forces entered the camp in large numbers and surrounded a building and demanded that the wanted person surrender himself to Israeli forces.
Earlier this month, as part of a large-scale operation in the West Bank, the Israeli army mapped the house of the terrorist who carried out the shooting attack in which American-Israeli Elan Ganeles was killed.
During the operation, 14 wanted people were arrested in several locations in the West Bank, with six suspects apprehended in the refugee camp for aiding the terrorists who shot up a restaurant at the Almog junction last week.
The region is currently experiencing a surge in attacks on Israelis, with three in the past month occurring in the West Bank town of Huwara alone.
Israeli forces are on alert to try to thwart planned attacks on Israeli soil, all the while reinforcing law enforcement during protests over proposed judicial reform legislation, which was postponed as a result. –i24 News
