Undercover IDF troops shot dead an Islamic Jihad gunman in the Casbah of Nablus overnight Thursday.
The gunman was killed when he tried to escape from a window after troops had surrounded a building in which he was hiding, calling on him to surrender.
During the operation a bomb was hurled at the soldiers. No one was wounded.
In the building, troops discovered a rifle, a handgun and several explosive devices which were defused by sappers.
The dead man was identified as Ra'al Abu al-Adis, 34, who, the IDF said, had attempted to perpetrate terror attacks against Israeli targets.
During the operation the IDF arrested a second Palestinian in possession of a gun.
Meanwhile, in Kalkilya, IDF soldiers arrested two Palestinian terror suspects.
