Israeli Tanks Re-Enter
West Bank City Of Jenin


Israeli tanks have entered the Palestinian city of Jenin in the West Bank and shooting exchanges have broken out.
Palestinian residents of the city said more than 20 tanks and other armoured vehicles entered the city from the west, and soon after gunfire and explosions were heard.
There was no immediate word on casualties and the Israeli military declined immediate comment.
Last week, Israeli troops completed a six-week sweep that targeted militants in the Palestinian cities and towns of the West Bank.
Israeli forces have continued to make brief incursions to arrest or kill suspected militants, but the operation in Jenin appeared to be on a larger scale.
The Jenin refugee camp, which is adjacent to the city, was the scene of fierce fighting last month.
The new incursion targeted the city and troops did not immediately enter the refugee camp.
