Undercover Border Police troops detained a wanted Palestinian during a rare daytime raid in the “heart of” the West Bank city of Jenin, police say.

“In broad daylight, the undercover officers entered a clothing store in the city, identified the suspect, and arrested him,” a Border Police spokesman says.

The man in his 20s, wanted for suspected “terror activities,” is taken to be questioned by the Shin Bet security agency.

He is identified by Palestinian media as Rayan Estiti.
