PA says 9 arrested by IDF in Jenin; no troops said hurt amid gunfire, bombing

Official Palestinian Authority news agency Wafa reports that one person was injured and nine were arrested overnight as IDF forces operated in the West Bank’s Jenin.

According to the Ynet news site, the Israeli troops were attempting to locate and defuse explosive devices hidden in the ground, presumably with the goal of harming soldiers in the future.

The report says there were no Israeli casualties, despite gunfights with Palestinian gunmen and Hamas claiming its terror operatives detonated bombs near the Israeli forces.
