Nine Palestinians Killed in Clashes with IDF near Jenin

(Ynet News) Nine Palestinians were killed during a clash with the Israeli army in the Jenin refugee camp on Thursday, the PA Health Ministry reported. The IDF said the operation was launched to "apprehend a terror squad belonging to the Islamic Jihad terror organization," acting on intelligence provided by the Israel Security Agency to thwart "a major attack." Eight of the Palestinian casualties were armed militants, most of whom were Islamic Jihad operatives. At least 20 others were wounded in the fighting. Such an extensive operation in broad daylight is unusual and suggests the planned Palestinian attack was due shortly. One of the those killed was Salahat 'Iz a-Din, considered one of the most prominent militants in Jenin.
