IDF troops entered Jenin and arrested a local leader of Islamic Jihad, pushing forward with an offensive against the terrorist group, witnesses said. About 35 jeeps, backed by Apache helicopters, entered Jenin on Thursday afternoon, and troops surrounded the home of Abdel Khalim Izzadin. After a brief standoff, Izzadin and three other men surrendered to troops, witnesses said. The army confirmed it had carried out an operation in Jenin, and said the troops were withdrawing. The arrest occured almost 24 hours after a suicide bombing killed five Israelis at an outdoor market in central Israel. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack.
