The Israeli armed forces and the Shin Bet – Israel’s internal security agency – confirmed an airstrike in Jenin.
In a joint statement they issued, they claim that they struck underground shelter in the area of the mosque, which was used as a base by its fighters Hamas and her Islamic Jihad.
The Shin Bet and the IDF claim they had information about an imminent terrorist attack planned by this cell. They also released images that – according to the relevant information – show a hatch that led from the mosque to the underground shelter, as well as a diagram of the area where weapons and ammunition were stored.
Israel fires back after rocket launches from Syria
The Israeli army announced in the meantime how it hit targets in Syria in retaliation for the new rocket launches against Israeli territory yesterday Sunday.
The air force “struck terrorist infrastructure in Syrian territory,” X (formerly Twitter) reported.
A few hours earlier Chahal, the Israeli army, announced that it hit positions from which rockets were fired towards Israeli territory. The rockets “fell in open space”, without causing casualties or damage.

It is unclear who fired the rockets. There has been no claim of responsibility.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a non-governmental organization based in Britain that relies on a wide network of sources, positions near the border were hit. Eyewitnesses spoke of explosions.
The situation on Israel’s border with Syria, as well as with Lebanon, has deteriorated dramatically after the war with Hamas broke out on October 7.
