YERUSHALAYIM — Israeli forces came under fire in Yehudah and Shomron in the early hours of Thursday while conducting a raid.

The forces were in Jenin, a known Islamic stronghold, to arrest individuals involved in terror activity. Three Palestinians were killed in the exchange of fire. No Israeli injuries were reported, baruch Hashem.

The three Palestinians killed were identified by Palestinian media as Tariq Aldamj, Siddiqui Zakarneh and Atta Shilbi.

Hours later, the IDF shot a Palestinian outside the village of Aboud,  near Ramallah.

The army said that he hurled stones and bottles of paint at Israeli cars on Route 465, alongside others.

“IDF soldiers conducting routine activity in the area… shot at the suspects,” the military said, adding that “hits were identified.”

The Palestinian Authority Health reported that the man died from his wounds. It also said that two others were wounded in the incident. Their conditions were listed as moderate and stable.

In other counter-terror raids across Yehudah and Shomron, 12 Palestinians were arrested and weapons were seized.

The IDF has been conducting almost nightly raids in Jenin as part of Operation Breakwater, a counterterrorism operation it launched in recent months.
