Security forces made a number of arrests in Kabatiya overnight between Wednesday and Thursday, operating in the West Bank village near Jenin from which three Arab terrorists launched a deadly gun and knife attack on Border Police officers in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
The IDF has placed the village under a semi-closure, allowing all humanitarian goods and passage, but placing restrictions on ordinary movements by residents in and out of Kabatiya.
IDF Engineering Corps units mapped out the homes of the three terrorists in the village ahead of their expected demolition.
The three terrorists were identified as Ahmed Rajeh Zakarneh, Muhammad Ahmed Kmail, and Ahmed Najeh Abu al-Rub – all from Kabatiya.
