Security forces confiscated improvised firearms and ammunition during a counter- terrorism raid on a mattress factory in Hebron overnight between Monday and Tuesday.

The raid was conducted by the Negev Foxes Battalion from the Infantry Training Center and Judea and Samaria district police.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, security forces mapped out terrorist’s homes ahead of their demolition.

Home Front Command soldiers of the Ram Battalion and Combat Engineering units from the Etzion Territorial Brigade, together with the Civil Administration, mapped out the home of Mas’ab Animat, who stabbed and wounded an IDF soldier on security patrol near Halamed-Heh crossing near Gush Etzion on October 23. Animat was shot in the leg by an IDF soldier and injured.

In Hebron, the Desert Foxes Battalion and Combat Engineering units from the Judea Territorial Battalion mapped out the home of Lama Bakri, who attempted to stab soldiers on December 13 in Kiryat Arba.

Lama was shot and seriously injured by an IDF soldier.
