Israeli troops have been operating in the city of Jenin in the West Bank for the second day, after the army entered the city on Tuesday. The Palestinian health ministry has reported that 10 Palestinians have been killed, and 25 wounded since Tuesday morning.

Wafa Jarrer, a Palestinian woman who was arrested in the raid, was severely wounded when the military vehicle in which she was held drove over an explosive device.

Jarrer, a 49-year-old resident of Jenin, is the wife of Ahmed Jarrer, who was the head of the group who in 2018 killed Raziel Shevach near the West Bank outpost of Havat Gilad. She was arrested in her house, on suspicion of involvement in terror activities. After she was wounded, Jarrer was taken to hospital on a helicopter.

According to The Palestinian Prisoners Society, Jarrer was arrested on Tuesday and suffered from previous health problems. The Society emphasized that Israel is responsible for her wellbeing.

The IDF has said that its forces, along with Border Police and Shin Bet forces, have been engaging in exchanges of fire with armed persons and killed some of them, including two who threw explosives toward the forces.

It was further said the troops confiscated military equipment and uncovered explosives that were buried underneath roads.

According to local reports, IDF forces are still moving in several parts of the city and the refugee camp within it, and throughout Wednesday sounds of shooting and explosions could be heard in the area.

According to witnesses, electricity has been cut off in the entire refugee camp, and many roads in several neighborhoods have been completely destroyed after IDF bulldozers dug them out.

According to testimonies in Jenin, special Israeli forces entered the city on Tuesday morning in disguise. They were exposed and a heavy exchange of fire began between them and local militants. Among those killed on Tuesday is a 15-year-old who was shot while riding his bicycle, three men in their fifties, one of whom was a doctor, and a 16-year-old boy.

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Mustafa warned in a statement on Wednesday of the dangers of "Israeli military escalation and settlers attacks in the West Bank".
