With an escalation in violence in Israel, the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) is doing everything in its power to protect its citizens, especially those living in the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria. In efforts to flush out members of the terrorist organization Islamic Jihad, the army conducted a series of operations in the PA-controlled city of Jenin. Early this morning, a 17-year-old Palestinian gunmen opened fire on two soldiers, wounding both of them. Soldiers immediately returned fire, killing him. Following the attack, the IDF made a number of arrests throughout Judea and Samaria.
