Monday night IDF forces raided the home of terrorist Muhammed Turkman who wounded three soldiers at the Focus Checkpoint earlier Monday afternoon.

Security forces at the scene shot and killed Turkman, 25, from the village of Kabatiya during the incident.

Turkman was allegedly a member of the Palestinian security forces, according to media reports.

The IDF also confiscated the family's work permits which allowed them entrance into Israel.

The terrorist's brother was also arrested for interrogation.

Additionally, IDF forces, in conjunction with Border Policemen, arrested 10 wanted men in the Jordan Valley overnight.

7 of the wanted suspects were arrested on charges of involvement in terror activity, disturbing the peace and violence.
