Israeli military: Forces kill Palestinian gunman in raid

KIFI

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — The Israeli military says its forces shot and killed a Palestinian who had opened fire on them during an arrest raid in the occupied West Bank. The military says it was carrying out an operation to arrest a suspect early on Thursday when armed men began firing on troops. It said forces killed one of the gunmen. The military says no soldiers were wounded and the suspect who was the target of the raid was arrested. The clashes comes amid a spike in Israeli-Palestinian violence in recent weeks, including shootings and stabbings by Palestinian attackers but also settler violence against Palestinians.
