Palestinian security forces uncovered 17 explosive devices near Tuk Karem area and transferred them to the IDF. Military sappers detonated the explosives in a controlled manner.

Despite the relative calm in the area, terrorist attempts by Hamas and Hezbollah continue in Judea and Samaria region. The move however, indicates a positive cooperation between the Palestinian security apparatus and the Israeli security forces.

Earlier this month, Palestinian forces transferred an explosive device weighing 12 kilograms attached to a gas ballon in Jenin. The IDF forces detonated the explosive in a controlled manner causing no casualties or damage.
