The IDF released Thursday afternoon footage documenting of the activity in the refugee camp in Jenin this morning, during which a number of Islamic Jihad terrorists who had previously carried out attacks against the security forces and were planning to carry out more attacks were eliminated.
Defense Minister Yoav Gallant completed a situational assessment together with the IDF Chief of the General Staff, Head of the ISA and additional officials in Israel's defense establishment.
Minister Gallant was briefed on the security situation in the various arenas and instructed the IDF and defense establishment to increase readiness in the face of possible developments.
Minister Gallant commended the IDF, ISA, Police and Border security forces for their activities overnight against Palestinian Islamic Jihad operatives in Jenin, who planned to conduct a terror attack in Israel.
The Minister instructed security officials to increase defensive activities on Israel's borders, in Judea and Samaria, and along the Gaza border.
Gallant said upon completing the situational assessment: "The State of Israel will continue to operate in any place and at any time against anyone who aims to harm the citizens of Israel. Our security forces are prepared for any development in the various arenas."
