The IDF soldiers entered the camp to arrest a Hamas operative. The troops were attacked by a group of young Palestinians with rocks, firebombs, and burning tires. One of the Palestinians threw an explosive device at the soldiers, who returned fire, killing him.

Over the course of the night, the IDF arrested six wanted Palestinians in Judea and Samaria.
