Footage from Jenin circulated on Friday morning showed firefights between armed Palestinians and Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers. One video showed a Palestinian gunman firing from behind a Red Crescent ambulance, as shouts of “Allahu Akbar” are heard.

A subsequent statement by the Palestinian Health Ministry said he was not killed but rather “critically injured and in a state of clinical death,” before announcing that he was pronounced dead.

Another Palestinian was killed and five more wounded, the ministry said.

The IDF said that Abu A-Tin took part in the firefight against Israeli soldiers.

said they arrested three wanted terrorists in the raid, including 24-year-old Mohammad Yosef Salama, believed to be involved in several recent shooting attacks against Israelis.

The raids were carried out as part of the ongoing Operation “Break the Wave,” a sustained crackdown on Palestinian terrorist networks in the West Bank.
