An Israeli drone overnight Saturday struck a terror cell in the Nur Shams refugee camp, located near Tulkarem in western Samaria.

The strike provided cover to Israeli soldiers who came under fire during an arrest operation in the camp.

Terrorists also threw explosives at the troops from inside a mosque.

Troops uncovered and destroyed improvised explosive devices under and on the side of the roads during the operation, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Several terrorists were detained, and weapons were confiscated.

There were no Israeli casualties.

On Tuesday night, an Israeli drone strike killed six Palestinian terrorists in the Nur Shams camp, the IDF said.

The strike came after Israeli troops who entered Nur Shams with armored bulldozers and military vehicles came under attack, according to the military.

A day earlier, Israeli forces destroyed an explosives lab in Nur Shams. Soldiers also confiscated more than 30 weapons, improvised rockets and other armaments in the building where the lab was located.

An IDF soldier was lightly wounded by shrapnel when terrorists shot and threw explosives at the troops, who responded with live fire.

Since Oct. 7, more than 2,550 wanted Palestinian terror suspects have been arrested in Judea and Samaria, of whom approximately 1,300 are associated with the Hamas terror organization.
