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.
