Israeli troops kill Palestinian militant in West Bank raid
Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian militant early Wednesday in the occupied West Bank during clashes that broke out during an arrest raid.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said the man was wounded by Israeli gunfire near Jenin during an arrest raid by the Israeli military and later died.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group claimed Marei as one of its fighters, and said he died "performing his duty and carrying the banner of Jihad and resistance."
The Israeli military said that while troops arrested two Palestinians in the northern West Bank city, Palestinians "hurled explosive devices" at soldiers, who responded with gunfire. It confirmed that a Palestinian was shot, but gave no additional details about the man's condition. The army said no troops were injured in the overnight arrest raids.
