Palestinian killed in gun battle with Israeli army

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman addresses a memorial ceremony for Israeli navy soldiers who died in the Dakar Submarine that went missing in 1968 at Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem

Israeli forces also detained two Palestinians from the Hebron district in the southern West Bank.

During the raid, Palestinians in Jenin threw explosives and rocks and shot at the Israeli troops, who used riot dispersal measures, including live fire, according to the IDF.

The Israeli army eventually shelled the house with rockets which led to the killing of Ahmed Isma'il Jarrar, 31.

The Israeli military brought journalists on Thursday to film a 2 km (1.25 mile) tunnel dug by militants from the Gaza Strip to Israel, saying it was putting the construction on display to show the continuing threat it faces from the territory.

Israeli security forces raided Jenin Wednesday night, and clashes started midnight and continued until the early morning hours.

Israeli special forces surrounded the house which belonged to the late leader of the al-Qassam Brigades, Sheikh Nasser Jarrar, and armed clashes took place with at least one person inside the targeted house.

The police stated that "several" terrorists were arrested at the end of the battle and were turned over to the Shin Bet (Israel's Security Agency) for questioning.

Tensions in the region have increased in recent weeks after US President Donald Trump's controversial decision to name Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Israeli forces confirmed that a Palestinian suspect in the terror attack in Havat Gilad had been tracked down and shot dead, but did not name him.

Hamas Spokesman Abdel Latif al-Qanou posted a statement on Thursday claiming that the incident "could not have happened without information sharing and...security coordination,"& and demanding that such "criminal" coordination between Israel and the PA "be ended".

The West Bank, captured by Israel in 1967 and sought by the Palestinians for a future state, is dotted with dozens of Israeli-government sanctioned settlements as well as unauthorized settler outposts that Israeli authorities have allowed to thrive.
