An Israel Defense Forces soldier was lightly wounded during a counterterror raid overnight Tuesday in the Jenin refugee camp in northern Samaria.

Forces operating in the camp clashed with Palestinian terrorists, who opened fire and threw explosives at them.

The forces located two tunnel shafts and three bomb-making labs, and confiscated several weapons and other terror equipment, the IDF said.

Troops arrested 10 wanted Palestinians in the camp, with another 16 suspects detained in operations in other areas of Judea and Samaria.

Overnight Monday, Israeli forces mapped for demolition two homes belonging to a Palestinian terrorist in the Jenin camp.

Ahmed Barakat is one of the terrorists responsible for the fatal shooting of Meri Tamari near the community of Hermesh in northwestern Samaria on May 30.

Last week, Israeli troops operating in the city of Jenin, located adjacent to the camp, killed Mohammed Zubeidi, the commander of Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s local battalion.

Zubeidi, a relative of notorious Fatah terrorist Zakaria Zubeidi, was killed alongside another senior Palestinian terrorist in an exchange of fire, according to the security forces.

Israeli forces have arrested more than 2,000 Palestinian terrorism suspects in Judea and Samaria, at least half of them affiliated with Hamas, since the beginning of the war on Oct. 7.
