An IDF operation in Nablus that began early Wednesday morning was continuing midday. Troops were surrounding a home in the Ras al-ein neighborhood where fugitives were reportedly hiding. The army confirmed that two of the fugitives had surrendered to troops, although the military could not confirm Palestinian reports that a third man, who was armed, had been wounded by troops in a gun battle. One of the men arrested was a member of Hamas, while the other man belonged to Fatah. Massive clashes erupted around the city, with Palestinians throwing rocks and iron rods at IDF soldiers stationed throughout Nablus. The troops fired rubber bullets and teargas to disperse the mobs. Palestinians reported that an additional 10 youths were wounded in the clashes. According to Palestinian rescue workers, a 14-year-old boy suffered serious wounds. Overnight in the West Bank, IDF forces arrested 11 wanted Palestinians; two were caught in Jenin and nine were apprehended in Bethlehem and the surrounding area. In the Jenin operation, Palestinians repeatedly fired upon the troops. In Bethlehem, a firebomb was thrown at a border policeman, who then pursued and caught the perpetrator. The raids were part of the ongoing crackdown on terror infrastructures in the West Bank. With AP
