“During the activity, Palestinian gunmen opened fire at the troops. IDF troops responded with fire,” the army said in a statement, adding that one soldier was hospitalised.
The Palestinian health ministry said “the Israeli occupation forces” killed two Palestinians, both males aged 17 and 23, in Jenin and another 15 were wounded.
Later on Thursday morning, another Israeli civilian was stabbed on a bus south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, the army said, before “a civilian on the bus shot the terrorist dead.”
