What else did Israeli forces do in Nablus?
Earlier on Wednesday morning, the IDF, Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Border Police entered Nablus and mapped the house of the terrorist who conducted the shooting attack in Huwara in which Yagel and Hallel Yaniv were murdered. The mapping was conducted in order to examine the possibility of demolishing the house.
During the mapping, Israeli forces fired at armed terrorists who fired at them and threw explosives at them.
Additionally, 26 individuals were arrested overnight on suspicion of terrorist activity as part of Operation Break the Wave, including in Ya'abad, Ni'lin, Kalkilya, Ain Umm Ashrat, Abu Dis, Aqabat Jaber and Beit Ummar, among other locations.
