Israeli security forces on Tuesday killed three members of a terror cell operating out of Nablus,  according to the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet).

The cell was responsible for several recent shooting attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians, the Shin Bet said in a statement.

“Three armed terrorists in a vehicle were killed in a clash with security forces. Israeli forces sustained no casualties,” said the Shin Bet.

The operation was the result of joint intelligence and operational activity by the Israeli Security Agency, the Israel National Counter-Terrorism Unit and the IDF, the statement said.

“The Israel National Counter-Terrorism Unit, the ISA and the IDF—our forces have proven today, once again, that there is no immunity for terrorists,” said Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. “Whoever harms us, will be harmed.”
