One Palestinian was killed and another seriously wounded in Jenin overnight Friday in a gun battle with Israeli forces, according to Israeli media reports.
The fatality, identified by the Palestinian Authority’s WAFA news agency as Amjad Fayad, was a member of one of the armed factions in the Jenin refugee camp, according to Ynet.
In a statement, the IDF said soldiers conducting a counter-terror raid in Jenin had returned fire after being targeted with fire bombs and an explosive device, as well as a drive-by shooting, according to the Israeli military.
On Saturday, P.A. Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh condemned Fayad’s death and called on the international community to “hold Israel accountable for its acts,” warning of “serious consequences of these repeated crimes.”
