An IDF raid on the Jenin refugee neighborhood in Samaria Tuesday exposed weapons and improvised explosive devices, as well as knives and various kinds of ammunition.

In the course of the raid, local terrorists fired live rounds at the soldiers and hurled firebombs. No one was hurt and no damage was caused.

The IDF force arrested one suspect for questioning. Palestinian Arab sources told Voice of Israel public radio that the suspect is a member of Hamas.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Arab activists and radical leftists have uploaded an edited video that claims to show security camera footage of the IDF shooting two Arab youths, in an incident that took place last Thursday, on “Nakba Day.”

The youths hurled rocks at IDF soldiers at the Bitunia checkpoint, not far from Beit El. The footage appears to show them dropping to the ground as they walked away from the IDF position.

The IDF said that the video is heavily edited in order to give a false picture of what really took palce. “On Thursday, a violent and illegal disturbance took place at Bitunia,” it insisted. “The video is edited in a tendentious manner and does not reflect the violence of the riot.”
