A Palestinian man has been killed as Israeli troops clash with Palestinian gunmen in the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank, Palestinian health officials say.

The Israel Defense Forces confirms troops are operating in the area, without providing additional details. The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry says at least one person has been killed by Israeli troops.

Footage published by Palestinian media outlets shows a convoy of armed military vehicles entering the area.

A local wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad claims its members opened fire on Israeli troops. The slain man is named by Palestinian media as Farouk Salameh, a PIJ operative.
