June 10 (UPI) -- Israeli forces killed two members of the Palestinian Authority's military intelligence and a third person during a raid Wednesday night in the West Bank city of Jenin.
The intelligence officers were identified as Adham Yasser Eleiwi and Tayseer Ayasa. A third Palestinian officer, Muhammad Samer Al-Bazour, was seriously wounded in the incident, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Israeli authorities said security forces were attempting to arrest Jamil al-Amouri and Wissam Abu Zaid, who they accused to be members of the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Al-Amouri, who was described by Palestinian media Wafa News, as a "freed prisoner from Israeli jails," died from injuries in the gunfight with Israeli forces.
Palestinian officials said Israeli forces were dressed in civilian clothing, attempted to arrest al-Amouri outside of Palestinian Military Intelligence Unit headquarters in Jenin. They said northern West Bank workers will take part in a strike Thursday to protest the shooting.
