i24 News – Palestinian militants opened fire on an Israeli military post in the West Bank city of Nablus on Thursday, prompting Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops to return fire and thwart the attack, and later arrest suspects.

According to the IDF, the attackers attempted to retaliate for an Israeli counterterrorism raid conducted earlier this week in the West Bank that resulted in the deaths of four Palestinian terrorism suspects.

Overnight Thursday, Israeli security forces conducted counterterrorism activities in a number of locations in the West Bank, including in the towns of Beita, Anata, Jabal Mualah, and Hebron.

The IDF detained four suspects, transferring them for further questioning.
