JERUSALEM - IDF forces raided the West Bank city of Jenin on Thursday in search of a suspected Palestinian terrorist, touching off clashes with residents who threw stones and Molotov cocktails at them, an Israeli security source said.
It was the second time this week that Israeli forces had entered the Jenin area to detain suspects.
On Tuesday, Israeli soldiers disguised as Palestinians raided the village of Tamoun, arresting a member of the Islamic Jihad group. Several dozen Palestinians were injured in ensuing clashes, medical officials said.
In the latest raid, the soldiers clashed with some 500 Palestinians, forcing them out of Jenin, the security source said. An elderly Palestinian woman was slightly injured by a dog used by IDF forces during the operation.
