Israeli forces carrying out a raid in the West Bank refugee camp of Jenin early Wednesday came under attack by residents armed with firebombs, the Israeli army said. The forces responded by firing back, it added.

Palestinian sources said two Palestinians were killed and two others were wounded as a result of the clashes.

Mohammed Salah.

The Israeli army said that the forces came under a hail of dozens of makeshift explosives and gunfire from rooftops while the infantry unit was carrying out an operation in the refugee camp. When the forces returned fire, a resident later identified as Mohammed Salah, 20, sustained bullets to his head and chest and died at the scene, Palestinian sources said.

Os Salameh.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said that three wounded Palestinians were evacuated to a hospital with gunshot wounds, one of whom in serious condition. The latter, who was later identified as Os Salameh, 16, succumbed to his wounds on the operating table.
