The IDF launched security raids in Jenin overnight between Wednesday and Thursday, recovering what it described as large quantities of weapons.

A Netzah Yehuda Battalion from the Kfir infantry brigade was joined by a Nahal reconnaissance battalion, and they operated across the city of Jenin, capturing homemade grenades, ammunition clips, and stolen IDF equipment, the army said.

Additionally, the IDF arrested ten security suspects overnight, seven of which are suspected of taking part in rioting and attacks on Israeli civilians and security forces.

Soldiers also arrested a Hamas member southwest of Nablus, and a second Hamas member was arrested in the village of Dir Amar, northwest of Ramallah.
