The Israeli army on Monday fired missiles from a helicopter during a raid on the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, an AFP photographer and the military said, reporting violent clashes.

A “massive exchange of fire” erupted as Israeli forces entered the northern West Bank city to arrest “wanted suspects”, an army statement said.

“IDF (army) helicopters opened fire toward the gunmen in order to assist in extraction of the forces,” the Israeli statement added. The Palestinian health ministry said three people had been killed.
