The army troops inflicted heavy losses on the militants while artillery units shelled terrorists' supply lines on the road from Beit Jin to Moqr al-Mir, repelling militants' attack.


Terrorist groups lost 30 members in the failed attack and pulled back the remaining pockets of their forces from the battlefield to evade more casualties.
