A spokesperson for Hamas has told Newsweek that the Palestinian movement is committed to resisting Israeli forces conducting new operations in the West Bank amid a temporary ceasefire reached in the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip.

Reports emerged late Tuesday of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops and armored vehicles, including bulldozers, storming the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank, conducting raids and destroying infrastructure. The IDF has long identified the densely populated site as a hub for Palestinian militant activity, while Palestinian officials have accused Israel of committing war crimes and stoking settler violence.

With no official reports released, an IDF spokesperson told Newsweek that Israeli forces are “currently conducting counterterrorism activities in the area.”
