Clashes reported as IDF says its forces are operating in Jenin refugee camp
Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.
The IDF says its forces are operating in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank.
A terse statement from the military says it will provide updates later on the rare daytime raid.
A local wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad said its members opened fire and hurled explosives at the Israeli force.
Palestinian media reports said troops launched a missile at a building where wanted Palestinians were apparently holed up, in a tactic known as a “pressure cooker,” to flush the suspects out.

Jenin is widely seen as a hotbed of terrorist activity and has been the focus of many of the raids.
