Israeli soldier killed during West Bank raid

I encountered an error while trying to paraphrase the text. Here’s a simplified version based on the original:

An Israeli soldier died, and 16 others were hurt in a military raid in Jenin, northern West Bank. Locals said Israeli forces raided a pharmacy near Jenin’s refugee camp at night and arrested people. Armored bulldozers damaged nearby infrastructure.

Israeli media said a roadside bomb injured soldiers in an armored vehicle as they left Jenin. When more troops came to help, another bomb exploded, killing one soldier. One soldier is in serious condition, and others have moderate or minor injuries. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) claimed responsibility for the bombs.

The Palestinian news agency Wafa reported that a young Palestinian man was injured by bullet shrapnel during the clashes. Violence in the West Bank has increased since the Gaza war started, triggered by a Hamas attack on southern Israel on October 7.

The UN reported that 536 Palestinians, including armed group members, attackers, and civilians, had been killed in conflict-related incidents in the West Bank and East Jerusalem by Monday. At least 519 were killed by Israeli forces, and 10 by Israeli settlers. Twelve Israelis, including eight security personnel, had also been killed in the West Bank, and another eight Israelis were killed in attacks by Palestinians from the West Bank.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society said that at least 28 Palestinians, including nine from Jenin, were arrested across the West Bank the previous day, bringing the total number of arrests since October to 9,430. Jenin has seen frequent Israeli raids targeting Hamas and PIJ members.

On Saturday, the military admitted that its forces broke protocol by strapping a wounded Palestinian man to the front of their jeep during operations in Jenin.
