Border Police officers killed a wanted Palestinian during an arrest raid in the Jenin area in the northern West Bank overnight, the military and police say.

Police say that during an attempt to arrest the wanted man, he fled. The officers opened fire, killing him.

The incident took place in the Jenin-area town of Yabed, according to Palestinian media.

He was named by Palestinian media as Asaad Issam al-Qaniri, 28. Reports said he was a former prisoner in Israel.

Another 20 wanted Palestinians were arrested by troops elsewhere in the West Bank during overnight raids, the IDF says.
