The IDF confirms killing three Palestinians during an arrest raid in Jenin overnight and Wednesday morning.

The army says it carried out a drone strike in the West Bank city, killing two Palestinian gunmen.

The IDF says another Palestinian killed by Israeli fire during the raid had hurled explosive devices at troops, who opened fire on the man.

Combat engineers destroyed a vehicle in Jenin that contained several primed explosive devices, the army says. Two suspects in the car were detained by the troops before it was blown up. One more wanted Palestinian was captured in Jenin, and weapons were seized, the IDF adds.

Combat engineers also uncovered roadside explosives in the city, the IDF says.
