Members of Sayeret Golani, a special squad dedicated to the fight against terrorism in this brigade of the Israeli Army, killed three Palestinian soldiers this morning after they were killed in a military confrontation at the Jit intersection in the northern West Bank. The fourth attacker, according to Israeli spokesmen, turned to the security forces.
“The soldiers recovered three rifles, a pistol, and bowls from the attackers,” the army said after searching the car with which the armed Palestinians came. Since this is not the first time that this type of armed forces has taken place in those areas, the soldiers of Sayeret Golani were waiting for them hours before. The Ministry of Health PNA identified those who were wounded by the Israelis as Jihad al Shami (24), Uday al Shami (22), and Mohammad Dabeek (18).
The Lake of the Lions, an armed group based in the old town of Nablo, identified its command, claiming it had ambushed Israeli soldiers with whom it had clashed.

According to this Islamist group, “the death of heroes will trigger a great Intifada” in the West Bank.
“I want to praise the members of Sayeret Golani for defeating three terrorists last night in Samaria,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at noon at the start of the week’s government meeting. In addition to speaking about his recent visit to Italy, Israeli media coverage and defending the controversial judicial reform plan, which has sparked many protests in the polarized country, Netanyahu also gave a few words to a volunteer from the police and several soldiers (who were not on duty at the time) that last Thursday At night he aborted a more serious attack on Tel Aviv.

In those areas of the North West Bank, all Israeli incursions end in armed conflict.
