One Palestinian was killed and 15 wounded Sunday in a battle with IDF troops in a West Bank town during an arrest raid, witnesses and Palestinian security officials said. The troops entered Tamoun in the northern West Bank to arrest an Islamic Jihad operative. Palestinians attacked the troops with rocks, firebombs and gunfire, the witnesses said, and the troops fired back, killing a man whom Palestinians said was a bystander. The IDF said soldiers returned fire from Palestinians during the raid, during which they detained the suspect. There were no IDF casualties or damage, the army said.
