A senior military official said that "41 Palestinians were arrested overnight. We are concentrating our efforts in Nablus. About a thousand Nahal soldiers operated in the Balata refugee camp and in the town of Awarta."
According to the source, an operation to 'clean house' is being conducted in Nablus, which he described as "the terror capital". Weapons, explosives, guns and ammunition were found in Nablus. "The IDF does not feel as if the hourglass is running out of time," the source said, and stressed that the IDF will "continue to deliver a strong blow to Hamas and strike anything that is related to Hamas."
