In response to the deadly bombing in the Hadera market Wednesday and to the launching of a kassam that landed in the sports field of Moshav Netiv Ha'asara, the IDF decided to crack down on Islamic Jihad cells, both in Gaza and in the West Bank.
On Wednesday night, the IAF bombed Kassam launch sites in Bet Hanun and Gaza City.
Meanwhile, in the West Bank, three Islamic Jihad operatives were arrested in the northern city of Jenin, not far from Kabatya, the hometown of the terrorist who exploded in the market Wednesday. Other operatives were arrested in Tulkarm, and Hamas operatives were also arrested in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
