The Palestinian Authority health ministry raises the death toll of the Israeli military’s raid in the West Bank city of Jenin to seven.

The ministry says three of them were killed in the initial airstrikes on the Jenin refugee camp.

The PA does not immediately identify the latest fatalities.

Earlier, Palestinian health officials said 27 people were wounded, seven of them seriously, as a result of the IDF’s airstrikes and during clashes with Israeli troops.

The ministry says the death toll is likely to rise further due to there being several critical injuries.
