Israeli forces killed two Palestinian militants during an arrest raid Thursday in the occupied West Bank, according to the military and the Islamic Jihad militant group.


The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the men as Naeem Jamal Zubaidi, 27, and Mohammad Ayman Saadi, 26 and said they were killed in a pre-dawn raid in the Jenin refugee camp.


The military said Saadi was a prominent Islamic Jihad member while Zubaidi was involved in shooting attacks against Israeli troops. Islamic Jihad said the two men were members.


The military said troops were carrying out an arrest raid and were met by gunfire. The forces responded, and the two men were killed in the exchange of fire.


The Palestinian Health Ministry said 210 Palestinians have been killed this year, including those who died during a brief conflict in Gaza in August. They included militants and civilians.
