IDF Special Forces operating in the Palestinian Authority (PA) city of Jenin in Samaria on Sunday night encountered and killed at least four terrorists.

IDF forces were operating in the city to capture a terror suspect when they encountered heavy gunfire at close range from several terrorists.

The troops fired back, hitting at least five of the shooters. They have the bodies of four terrorists in their possession. The state of the other terrorists is unknown at this time.

There were no Israeli casualties.

A similar incident occurred in mid-July. After arresting five terrorists, the IDF soldiers encountered massive gunfire from terrorists who shot at them and threw numerous explosive devices, in a number of hotspots.

The troops responded by firing at a number of armed terrorists, hitting six terrorists and seizing an M-16 assault rifle used by one of the terrorists.

Israeli forces operate nightly to arrest terrorists and carry out counterterrorism operations in Judea and Samaria. While the forces often encounter resistance from locals who throw rocks and firebombs at the forces, gun battles are less common.
