The Israeli army withdrew on Tuesday night from the northern West Bank city of Jenin and its refugee camp, ending a two-day large-scale military operation there, reported Xinhua, quoting Israeli and Palestinian sources.
Israel Radio reported that the Israeli army withdrew from the city and its refugee camp amid an intensive exchange of fire between its soldiers and dozens of Palestinian militants.
Palestinian security sources said the Israeli army had left Jenin but remained stationed at two Israeli checkpoints north and west of Jenin.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, the Israeli military operation in Jenin has left 13 Palestinians killed and at least 150 others wounded, including 30 in critical condition.
