An IDF officer sustained mild injuries in the early hours of Monday morning when Palestinians opened fire at soldiers operating in Nablus' Balata refugee camp.


The officer was taken to a hospital for treatment.


Other IDF forces operating in the West Bank on Monday apprehended 10 wanted Palestinians in Bethlehem, Jenin, Nablus and Ramallah.


Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin told the cabinet Sunday that said that the ongoing efforts of the IDF, the Shin Bet and the police were behind the apparent calm in the country recently, adding that security forces had thwarted seven suicide bombings in Israel in the last month-and-a-half.


Diskin told the ministers that an IDF operation in the Beit Ilma village near Nablus prevented a large suicide bombing set to be carried out in Tel Aviv during the holidays. However, he added that the Shin Bet was concerned about the fact that the explosive belt was passed through several checkpoints undetected.
