An 18-year-old Palestinian hit by Israeli fire near Jenin this week succumbed to his wounds Friday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. 

Lutfi Labadi was wounded during an exchange of gunfire with Israeli troops in the West Bank village of Yamoun four days ago.

He suffered a head wound and was hospitalized in Ibn Sina Hospital in Jenin, where he died, according to the ministry. 

Israeli forces raided Jenin and made arrests overnight on Thursday, according to Palestinian reports. No casualties from the operation have been reported.

Earlier this week, an 18-year-old Palestinian high school student succumbed to her wounds nearly two weeks after being caught in a crossfire during an Israeli military raid in Jenin, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

Hundreds attended Hanan Khadour's funeral in her village of Faqua.
