16 Palestinians were injured on Monday during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the northern West Bank city of Jenin, Palestinian medics disclosed.

Zakarneh, a member of the PIJ armed wing, had spent two years in Israeli jails.

An Israeli armed force stormed the city at dawn to arrest Alla’a Zakarneh, a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), sources said.

He added that clashes broke out between the Israeli soldiers and Palestinian gunmen.

The soldiers surrounded 30-year-old Zakarneh’s house and called on him by loudspeakers to surrender, said the witnesses.

Saraya al-Quds, the armed wing of PIJ, said in a statement that Zakarneh exchanged fire with the Israeli soldiers until he ran out of ammunition.

Then he handed himself to the soldiers.
