The Israel Defense Forces killed five Palestinian terrorists and destroyed an explosives laboratory in the Jenin camp in an overnight counter-terrorism operation, the army said on Sunday morning.

According to the IDF, the five were killed during shootouts with soldiers.

A squad of terrorists who endangered the lives of soldiers was targeted in an airstrike and captured.

Twenty-nine wanted Palestinians were arrested, including Osama Bani Fadl, a member of Hamas who is suspected of killing Shay Silas Nigreker, 60, and his 28-year-old son Aviad Nir in the Palestinian village of Huwara, outside Nablus in Samaria, in August.

Soldiers inside the camp seized two weapons, a large amount of ammunition, explosive charges and military equipment. Two observation posts used to track Israeli movement in the camp were destroyed.
