Israeli forces carried out assault in the West Bank city of Jenin for a second day Wednesday, killing at least 11 Palestinians, reports AFP.

The Palestinian health ministry in Ramallah said Israeli forces had killed 11 people including four children, and wounded 25.An AFP correspondent on Tuesday saw four bodies at Jenin's Khalil Suleiman government hospital morgue.

Israel's army said on Wednesday troops had "exchanged fire with armed men and killed some of them,".

The official Palestinian news agency Wafa and medical charity Doctors Without Borders reported that surgeon Usaeed Jabareen, from the government hospital, was among those killed on Tuesday.

A schoolteacher and a student were also among the dead, Wafa reported, quoting hospital director Wissam Bakr.

The Israeli army said it had raided the house of Ahmed Barakat, who was suspected of involvement in an attack on an Israeli civilian last year.

Meir Tamari, 32, was killed in May 2023 at the entrance to a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank, medics and military officials said at the time.

Streets near the entrance to the Jenin camp were deserted on Wednesday afternoon, with drones buzzing overhead.

On the outskirts of the town, Israeli armoured vehicles were parked near a roundabout, while agricultural workers toiled on a farm across the road.
