Earlier, the ministry said Habib Mohammed Abdul Rahman Kamil, 25, was killed, and another man was critically hurt.
The military, Border Police, and Shin Bet in a joint statement said troops entered the city near Jenin to arrest a wanted man who was allegedly planning terror attacks.
During the raid, clashes erupted and troops shot several Palestinians, including one who opened fire at the forces, the statement said.
No Israeli soldiers were hurt in the operation, officials say.
