Security forces led by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and the Border Police’s undercover unit in the West Bank arrested two wanted terrorist operatives in the Jenin refugee camp early Tuesday, on suspicion of planning attacks on the army.

Kais Sa’adi, 24, a wellknown Hamas operative, has carried out shooting attacks on the IDF, manufactured and planted explosives and trafficked weapons, the Shin Bet said. Sa’adi was arrested in the counterterrorism operation.
