Does your terrorist lose his flavor in the arrests overnight? Almost every day there is an announcement like the one below: "IDF arrested 10 wanted men in Jenin overnight," "IDF foiled suicide bombing plot in Nablus overnight." Tanzim is not Hamas, but Fatah-affiliated. This group is supposedly controlled by Abu-Mazen, who wants peace. What happens when there is a Palestinian state in Nablus??

IDF troops, in cooperation with Border Police, killed a senior Tanzim member in Jenin overnight Wednesday, Army Radio reported on Thursday morning.
The target, who had been planning to carry out terror attacks in Israel in the near future, pulled a gun on the soldiers, who then shot him.
However, Palestinian officials said the man killed was a Palestinian policeman driving a wanted terror suspect.
They named the dead man as Mohammed Abu Tsror, 21, and said the Islamic Jihad operative with him in the car escaped unharmed despite efforts by undercover soldiers dressed in civilian clothes.
Meanwhile, a combined force of Golani infantry, tanks and engineering were rooting out terrorist infrastructure along the security fence in Central Gaza starting early Thursday morning.
So far, the force has shot four armed terror operatives.
Overnight Wednesday, the IDF targeted and hit a Kassam rocket squad in northern Gaza just after it fired a Kassam, which landed near the security fence.
No IDF casualties or damage were reported in any of the incidents.
Troops also arrested 10 terror suspects throughout the West Bank.
