Israeli troops kill 3 Palestinians in West Bank gunbattle


JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli forces have shot dead three Palestinians and wounded at least eight others during a military operation in the occupied West Bank town of Jenin. Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi on Friday confirmed that three “terrorists” had been killed. The Israeli military has been carrying out near-daily raids in the occupied West Bank since a string of attacks earlier this year killed 19 people in Israel. The military says it raided two locations in search of weapons. At the first, it says soldiers responded after Palestinians opened fire and hurled explosive devices at them. On their way to the second location, the army says they exchanged fire with Palestinian gunmen in a vehicle.
