“During operations to arrest terrorist operatives in the city of Nablus, a firefight broke out between IDF soldiers and people who were identified by the troops as suspects. After the fact, it was determined that it was Palestinian security services personnel,” the IDF said in a statement, adding that the incident would be investigated.

According to P.A. media, the IDF entered Shechem/Nablus without providing customary notification to the P.A., and opened fired on a security services building, where one member of the P.A. security forces was lightly wounded. No Israeli soldiers were wounded in the incident.

Overnight, IDF troops arrested 18 P.A. terrorism suspects throughout Judea and Samaria.
