PA health ministry raises death toll from IDF counterterror op in Jenin to 11

The Palestinian health ministry in the West Bank has updated the death toll from the IDF’s counterterror op in the West Bank city of Jenin to 11, with 25 wounded.

The Israel Defense Forces said it launched the operation following “intelligence information from the Shin Bet indicating the activity of armed terrorists affiliated with the Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organizations, and the presence of many terror infrastructures in the area.”

Israeli forces raided Jenin on Tuesday, killing eight Palestinians, including a doctor and a teenager.

Three others were killed today, bringing the number of those who were killed in Jenin to 11 and the total death toll to 517 in the West Bank since October 7, the health ministry adds. The vast majority of those deaths were from clashes with IDF troops.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammed Mustafa warns in a statement of the dangers of “Israeli military escalation and settlers attacks in the West Bank.”
