The IDF says it carried out an airstrike on a Palestinian gunman during a raid in the West Bank city of Jenin overnight.

According to the official Palestinian Wafa news agency, one man was moderately wounded in the drone strike.

Troops operated in Jenin to arrest a wanted Palestinian and uncovered explosive devices planted under the roads, the IDF says.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, another nine terror suspects were detained, the IDF says.

Since October 7, the IDF says, troops have arrested some 3,400 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including more than 1,500 affiliated with Hamas.
