The official broadcaster Palestine TV said the Israeli forces raided several areas across the occupied West Bank including the Jenin governorate, and that an exchange of fire took place in Qabatia town between the Israeli forces and Palestinian resistance fighters.
The Israeli forces carry out near-daily raids and incursions in Palestinian areas under the pretext of searching for “wanted Palestinians”.
Israel occupied the West Bank, along with east Jerusalem and Gaza, in the 1967 Mideast war. The Palestinians want those areas for their own state.
