Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the car ramming and stabbing attack in Tel Aviv on Tuesday would not deter Israel from its fight against terrorism. Netanyahu spoke during a visit to the West Bank military post near Jenin where IDF troops were operating for a second day to uproot terror cells. "Anyone who says we will be deterred in our fight against terror is wrong, Netanyahu said. "He does not know the Israeli spirit, the government, our civilians and fighters," the prime minister said.

The IDF and Shin Bet said earlier that they had found and detonated hundreds of explosive devices, some already positioned to explode and others in stages of preparation in labs discovered inside the Jenin refugee camp including dozens of pipe bombs and devices activated remotely, found in one location. "The entrance was boobytrapped and the fighters disarmed the explosives. This was the fourth lab discovered by the same fighting unit," they said. In another location the forces found a shaft full of arms and cash. In total 13 terror suspects were apprehended there and transferred to the Shin Bet for interrogation.
