The IDF says troops killed three Palestinian gunmen, detained 14 terror suspects, and carried out an airstrike amid a raid in the West Bank city of Jenin overnight.

The operation was carried out by the Duvdevan commando unit, Haruv reconnaissance unit, and Border Police officers.

The IDF says the troops also seized weapons and located explosive devices hidden under the roads in Jenin.

The airstrike amid the raid was carried out against a group of Palestinian gunmen shooting at the troops, according to the IDF.

In other areas of the West Bank, another 26 wanted Palestinians were detained, the IDF says.

Since October 7, troops have arrested more than 3,200 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including more than 1,350 affiliated with Hamas.
