Jenin - Ma'an - The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, claimed that their fighters confronted Israeli forces that entered the West Bank town of Qabatiya, near the city of Jenin on Saturday.

The group's spokesperson said that Al-Quds Brigades fighters threw grenades at Israeli forces who invaded the town from several directions.

"The occupation forces raided a number of houses and spread through the streets and alleys of the town looking for resistance members, but Al-Quds Brigades fighters [blocked] the operation amid a barrage of gunfire and grenades," he said

The spokesman said at the conclusion of his speech that the Israeli forces withdrew from the town without arresting any fighters or civilians.
