Earlier this morning, the Israeli border guard, an armed unit operating in the occupied West Bank, launched an operation in Jenin to arrest a man involved in “terrorist” activities when he came under fire.
“Fierce fire was fired at the force from a short distance and from a large number of people. The infiltration forces of the border guard responded to the terrorists and neutralized them. “There are no casualties in our ranks,” the border police said.
The Palestinian news agency Wafa soon reported that at least two Palestinians, Raed Abu Saif and Saleh Omar, had been killed in the clashes.
A French Agency photographer found the two dead at the Jenin Hospital morgue, where eyewitnesses said Israeli forces were guarding the bodies of two other Palestinians.
