IDF troops came under attack during counter-terrorism operation in Samaria
The IDF arrested 13 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
During a counter-terrorism operation in the Arab city of Qalqiliya, a Muslim terrorist threw firebombs at the troops. The terrorist was shot and neutralized.
Upon searching him, explosives devices and additional firebombs were found.
IDF soldiers provided the terrorist with first aid before he was taken into security agencies. No injuries among the troops.
In addition, as a part of an ongoing campaign against illegal weapons, IDF troops discovered locally-made weapons in the Arab village of Rabud, in the Hevron area.
