‘Nine Palestinians killed’ in Israeli raid
Israeli forces have killed at least nine Palestinians, including a 60-year-old woman, and wounded several others during a raid in a flashpoint area of the occupied West Bank, Palestinian health officials say.
The violence occurred during what Palestinian health officials described as a fierce operation in the Jenin refugee camp, a militant stronghold of the West Bank that has been a focus of nearly a year of Israeli arrest raids.
The conflict spiked this month, with 29 Palestinians killed since the start of the year.
It was not immediately clear how many of those killed on Thursday were affiliated with armed groups.
