In the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Israeli forces say they shot and killed a young Palestinian man overnight in the town of Jenin, after a firefight that left another Palestinian injured along with two Israeli soldiers. The man was identified as Ahmed Jarrar, a Hamas fighter and son of a Palestinian man killed by Israel in 2002. Jarrar’s family said today he escaped, and that two other Palestinians were killed in the attack.
