After four major terror attacks in Israel at the end of March and beginning of April, tensions continue to increase in the West Bank. With Muslims celebrating Ramadan, and the Jewish Passover and Christian Easter coming, Israel is preparing for more trouble.

Israeli troops have been in the region for the past two weeks to apprehend those planning more assaults in an operation dubbed by the Israel Defense Forces as "Operation Break the Wave." They are focusing on the Jenin area because the perpetrators of the two most recent attacks are from the city, but are also raiding other West Bank locations.
