A Palestinian terror suspect was shot dead during clashes that erupted when the IDF embarked on a security raid in Jenin overnight Tuesday.

Security forces entered Jenin to arrest a wanted security suspect, and encountered a riot in which gunmen opened fire on troops, and Molotov cocktails and homemade grenades were hurled by Palestinians.

Soldiers responded by opening fire at one of the lead rioters, who was lightly injured and evacuated an Israeli hospital.

During the disturbances, security forces identified the security suspect they had come to originally arrest. The suspect fled, and was shot and seriously wounded, the IDF said.

He was seriously injured and evacuated to an Israeli hospital, where he died of his injuries.
