The IDF has sealed overnight on Saturday a bookstore in the West Bank city of Nablus that Hamas had been using as a space to create explosives as well incitement and propaganda materials. The sealing of the store came as part of an ongoing IDF and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) operation that started in December of 2016 and in which a Hamas cell that had planned to carry out terror attacks in Haifa and in Jerusalem was uncovered by the security forces.

According to the IDF, the terror cell had been using the bookstore as a meeting point where members of the cell convened to plan future terror attacks they intended to execute.
