Israel’s Defence Force found themselves under attack, late Saturday night, as they patrolled the  city of Jenin. The troops found themselves attacked by an Arab gang who threw rocks and firebombs.

The IDF responded by using tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the gang, before using live amunnition on two men armed with explosive devices, killing one of the men;   19-year-old,Palistinian Mohamed Abu Khalifa. Three other men were injured in the incident.

It comes just days after authorities detained five members of the Hammas linked Khalifa family. During that operation they again came under attack by local residents, injuring one member of the IDF.
