A number of IDF battalions have been sent to the West Bank to reinforce security measures there.

One of the battalions sent to the area is from the Golani infantry brigade, which was training in the North prior to being mobilized to the West Bank.

Security sources stressed that the reinforcement is not a sign of an imminent escalation in the security situation in Judea and Samaria.

The IDF's Central Command has also increased patrols along roads in the West Bank.
