Israeli soldiers have killed a Palestinian woman during a raid in the West Bank town of Tulkarm.
Eitas Zalat, 41, died and her two daughters were slightly wounded as Israeli troops opened fire during the arrest of an alleged militant.
An Israeli army spokesman said that “shooting broke out when a top official of Islamic Jihad” resisted arrest.
The spokesman said the army was very sorry “when innocent people are hurt”, and promised a full investigation.
Several people were arrested during the Israeli military operation in the West Bank.
