Palestinians identified the dead man as a 19-year-old belonging to a family known to Israeli security forces. Just last Thursday, five members of the man's extended family were arrested during an IDF raid in Jenin for wanted suspects.

 

IDF anti-terror activities have increased recently as a result of several attacks in the last week.

 

Sunday night two suspects were detained in Deir Abu Mash'al by the Shin Bet and the IDF's elite Duvdevan unit. The two were arrested for attempting to plan a shooting attack near Nili in the West Bank.
