Palestinian killed, 16 wounded in West Bank raid by Israeli army: Palestinian ministry

RAMALLAH (AFP): A Palestinian was killed and 16 others wounded by the Israeli army Tuesday in a raid in Jenin in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.

“The outcome of the Israeli aggression on Jenin at dawn today: A 29-year-old martyr and 16 wounded with bullets and shrapnel were admitted to hospitals,” the Palestinian health ministry said.

The Israeli army said in a statement it had entered Jenin overnight “in order to demolish the residence” of the perpetrator of a deadly shooting attack in Tel Aviv in April.
