All IDF troops withdraw from Jenin as operation finishes

All IDF troops have left Jenin as the Israeli military operation in the West Bank Palestinian city has completed, its goals having been achieved, IDF spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Daniel Hagari said Wednesday morning.

This follows days of fighting in the northern West Bank city, where the IDF sought to neutralize terrorist infrastructure. 

The operation saw condemnation from the Gaza-based Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, who launched five rockets into southern Israel early Wednesday morning. The IDF responded to this by striking several Hamas targets throughout the Gaza Strip. 

Following the operation's conclusion, Hamas political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh issued a statement, saying that Israel's operation in Jenin was a failure. 

"Israel failed and was defeated in Jenin," Haniyeh said, according to Maariv. Despite the many casualties suffered in Jenin, Haniyeh said that this "Taught the enemy a lesson and caused them to suffer heavy losses."

This is a developing story.
