Clashes erupted as the Israeli forces entered Ramallah, with at least three Palestinians injured by Israeli fire, according to Palestinian reports.
Israeli media, citing Palestinian reports, stated that a Palestinian photojournalist was seriously injured by IDF fire during the clashes.
The terrorist, identified as Islam Faroukh, was arrested by Israeli forces in late December. In February, the IDF announced that it intended to demolish Faroukh's home.
The Jerusalem bombing attack in November
On November 23, Israeli citizens Tadasa Tashume Ben Ma'ada and Arye Shechopek were murdered after explosives placed by Faroukh detonated at two bus stops at the entrance to Jerusalem and in the Ramot neighborhood of the city.
According to the indictment against Faroukh, the terrorist had adopted the worldview of the ISIS terrorist organization and had studied mechanical engineering at an Israeli college.
A day after the attacks, Faroukh sent a message via Telegram to the ISIS-affiliated Nasher News claiming responsibility for the attack.
