The elite Duvdevan unit conducted counter-terrorism and arms raids in the Jenin refugee camp overnight between Saturday and Sunday, arresting two terror suspects, and seizing an M-16 assault rifle and explosive devices.

During the mission, the unit surrounded a location due to a suspicion that an armed suspected had barricaded himself inside.
