Israel Police Preparing for Mass Terrorist Infiltration from Jenin

Israel Police’s Lowlands division conducted training exercises and security assessments throughout Israel’s Northwest in recent weeks. These precautions are due to the ongoing warnings of possible Palestinian terrorist infiltrations into Jewish settlements within the region.

Since the infiltration of Hamas terrorists into Israeli territory on October 7, police units have been preparing for any possible scenario of high-risk terrorist attacks. This comes following previous reports that under Hamas’s original plan, attacks would occur beyond Gaza and throughout Judea and Samaria as well, perpetrated by local terror cells and allies.

Jenin, located in the northwestern part of Judea and Samaria, has become, in recent years, a hotbed for terrorist activity. The IDF and Shin Bet killed a Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist in Jenin in a drone strike in late February en route to committing a shooting attack likely on Israeli forces.

In January, three Palestinian men were killed in a hospital by Israeli commandos, with one being a member of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

Avi Daniel, Commander of Israel Police’s Lowland Region, discussed the readiness of the security forces if a possible infiltration occurs, saying, “We are exceptionally strong and prepared for any scenario and intrusion.” (JPost / VFI News)
