JERUSALEM: A Palest­inian was killed overnight in clashes with the Israeli army during an operation in the flashpoint occupied West Bank city of Jenin, the Palestinian health ministry said on Friday.

Salah al-Buraiki, 19, died after being shot in the neck, the ministry said in a statement, adding that three other Palestinians were wounded in the clashes.

The Israeli army said that during the Jenin operation, “suspects hurled explosive devices and fired shots at the security forces, who responded with live fire. Hits were identified”. Forces also “apprehended one wanted individual suspected of involvement in terrorist activity”, the statement added.

More than 100 Palestinian fighters and civilians have been killed since the start of the year, the heaviest toll in the West Bank for nearly seven years, according to the United Nations.

An Israeli raid in Jenin last Friday left two Palestinians dead, including a doctor.
