Israeli undercover force raids Jenin, 2 hurt

JENIN (Ma'an) -- An Israeli undercover force conducted an arrest raid in the West Bank city of Jenin on Thursday morning, sparking clashes with Palestinian residents.

Agents dressed as Palestinians, accompanied by army units, entered the industrial zone in the city and surrounded a bakery and number of shops.

During a raid on the home of 93-year-old Amneh Hisnawi, who was alone in the house, Israeli army dogs attacked the elderly woman, requiring her evacuation to Israeli hospital.

An army spokesman said she was lightly injured after being bitten by a dog belonging to security personnel, treated on the scene, and then transferred by forces to an Israeli facility for further treatment.

He said the raid on Jenin was to arrest a Palestinian suspected of terror activity. Military sources said the suspect was not at home, so the force withdrew.

During the operation, around 500 Palestinians hurled rocks, firebombs, and burned tires, and forces responded with riot dispersal means, the spokesman said.

Fadi Ijawi, 23, was wounded in the leg by live bullet and taken to a Palestinian hospital, a Ma'an reporter said. Dozens of Palestinians also suffered tear gas inhalation.

Locals also told Ma'an that one man was detained during the raid, identified as Amjad Ighbariyeh.

The undercover operation comes after dozens were injured on Tuesday in a similar incident in nearby village Tamoun.

At least thirty people were injured with live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas during the clashes, after undercover forces arrested Murad Bani Odeh, a member of Islamic Jihad.
