IDF soldiers shot and wounded a wanted Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank town of Tulkarm on Saturday, Israeli and Palestinian security officials said. Palestinian security officials said the man was a senior Islamic Jihad official in the Tulkarm area named Zuhair Fuqaa who has also worked with Palestinian security. The Israeli troops were carrying out an arrest operation in Tulkarem when they spotted the Islamic Jihad member and called on him to stop, the army said. When the suspect started running and did not respond to calls by soldiers to stop, soldiers shot at him, wounding him in the arm, the army and Palestinian witnesses said. The suspect was evacuated to an Israeli hospital, the army said. His condition was not immediately known. The Israeli army has increased its West Bank raids to arrest Islamic Jihad members since the group carried out a December 6 suicide bombing that killed five Israelis.
