IDF Troops Battle Palestinian Militants in Jenin

(Ynet News) Yoav Zitun - Israeli security services overnight Wednesday conducted a partial demolition of a house in the West Bank city of Jenin belonging to the family of a terrorist who killed Rabbi Raziel Shevach in January 2018. Although the house had been demolished in the past, the structure was rebuilt. Soldiers at the scene reported that at least four masked militants, wearing all black, began firing at them with AK-47 and M-16 assault rifles as soon as the troops arrived in the area. The gunfire was accompanied by a 200-strong mob hurling rocks, firebombs and explosives at the soldiers. IDF snipers on rooftops began firing back at the militants in a violent exchange that lasted almost two hours. In addition, explosives planted under military vehicles began detonating during the battle.
