Terrorist responsible for shooting attacks captured during raids. Three terrorists shot while attacking soldiers


Overnight, IDF, ISA and Israel Border Police forces conducted counterterrorism activities in a number of locations in Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley area, including in the towns of Qabalan, Beita and Marj Na’je.

This morning, in a joint IDF, ISA and “Yamam” Police forces activity in the town of Wadi Bruqin near Jenin in northern Samaria, the wanted suspect Athb al-Bali was apprehended.

The suspect is a terror operative from the city of Jenin who was previously imprisoned. He is suspected of carrying out a number of shooting attacks and advancing significant terrorist attacks. The wanted suspect turned himself in to the forces in the area.

During the activity, shots were fired and explosive devices were hurled at the soldiers. The soldiers responded with live fire toward suspects who fired at them. A hit was identified.

According to the Palestinian Authority’s WAFA media outlet, three terrorists were shot during the gun battle. One of the three terrorists was shot in the chest and is listed in critical but stable condition, while the other two suffered wounds to the shoulder and leg and are in light condition.

The soldiers operated in the towns of Bayt Awa and al-Burj and apprehended a wanted individual suspected of involvement in terrorist activity. The soldiers also confiscated three illegal vehicles.

In parallel, the soldiers operated in the town of Ni’lin and in the town of Abu Dis to apprehend six wanted individuals suspected of involvement in terrorist activity.

Two additional suspects were apprehended in the city of Tulkarm.

No IDF injuries were reported.

The suspects and vehicles were transferred to security forces for further processing.

In other news, MK Bezalel Smotrich, chairman of the Religious Zionism party, has informed the Likud that he is willing to compromise on his demand to be appointed Defense Minister – but only if certain conditions are met, Kan Reshet Bet reported Monday morning.

According to the report, Smotrich is willing to forgo the Defense Ministry if he receives the Finance Ministry and extensive responsibilities from the Defense Ministry related to Judea and Samaria.

Among these responsibilities are the responsibility and authority for the civil matters of Israelis in Judea and Samaria, including responsibility for the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the Civil Administration Unit, and responsibility for enforcement in open areas.

Smotrich is demanding that the entire issue of settlements in Judea and Samaria be transferred to the Finance Ministry, so that even if no one is appointed Defense Minister in the end, he will still be able to set the policies for the area.

It is not yet clear what the Likud’s position on this matter is – but it is clear that the party is not happy with this demand, the report says.

Smotrich has demanded to be appointed either Defense Minister or Finance Minister. The US is pressuring Netanyahu not to grant Smotrich the Defense Ministry, but Netanyahu has already offered the Finance Ministry to Shas chair MK Aryeh Deri, and Deri has accepted the offer.

In yet other now, Israel protested to Russia following its use of UAVs it purchased from Iran in its war against Ukraine, Kan 11 News reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the protest call was held in recent days in a conversation between the Israeli ambassador and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov.
