According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, an Israeli raid by forces in the occupied West Bank on Friday resulted in the death of one Palestinian.
Witnesses said that fighting broke out in the town of Jenin during the Israeli attack.
Israeli military officials claimed that when the incident started, they were on their route to capture a militant suspect.
“Suspects hurled explosive devices and fired shots at the security forces, who responded with live fire. Hits were identified,” the military said. It did not elaborate.
Following months of heightened tension that started in March when Israeli troops started a crackdown in the West Bank in response to a slew of attacks by Palestinians inside Israel, violence erupted on Friday.
