An IDF soldier was lightly hurt during clashes with Palestinian gunmen amid a raid in the Jenin area in the northern West Bank, the military says.

The IDF says the 13-hour raid has concluded, during which Duvdevan commandos killed two “senior” Palestinian gunmen in Qabatiya, just south of Jenin.

Several suspects were arrested in the Jenin area, and combat engineers uncovered explosive devices planted under roads, the army says.
