Three Palestinians were shot dead in the Israeli-occupied city of Jenin in the West Bank. Among the dead were two security guards.
The Palestinians said that a gun battle broke out during the Israeli attack on Jenin last night. A spokesperson for President Abbas said that Palestinians were killed by Israeli troops in plain clothes. He condemned this “dangerous escalation in Israel.”
The Israeli border police said that officials were planning to arrest two militants of the militant Islamic Jihad movement during the gun battle last night. One of the two suspects and two Palestinian agents were killed. The second suspect was injured.
