The IDF is considering using attack helicopters if Israeli troops encounter fire from dozens of Palestinian gunmen during military operations in the West Bank, according to Channel 12 news.

The report comes after a commando from an elite police counterterror unit was killed when Israeli forces came under heavy fire, during a raid Friday in the Jenin area.
