Of these, over 1,350 are linked to the terrorist organization Hamas.

In the most recent operation, overnight Tuesday units from the IDF, the Shin Bet, and Border Police jointly arrested 40 wanted terrorists in these regions. Notably, a counterterrorism operation in Jenin led by IDF’s special forces Duvdavan and Charuv units, along with Border Police, resulted in the arrest of 14 individuals, the death of three terrorists, and injuries to others. The operation also uncovered weapons and explosives strategically planted under roads to target Israeli forces.
