The Palestinian health ministry confirmed a Palestinian was killed in the operation, naming him as Ahmed Ismail Jarrar, 31.

Witnesses said two houses belonging to the family were also demolished during the operation.

Videos posted online by Palestinians showed multiple Israeli armoured vehicles entering the city.

"As previously stated, Tamimi has been under arrest since December 19th, 2017 and an indictment against her was submitted for attacking an IDF officer and soldier on December 15th, 2017, attacking security forces on five additional occasions, rock throwing, participating in violent riots, threating and inciting others", the official said.

22-year-old Ahmad Jarrar, the commander of the terror unit that carried out the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach in Havat Gilad last week, was killed during Thursday night's raid in Jenin.

The number of Palestinians languishing in Israeli custody now stands at some 6,500, according to Palestinian figures.

Israeli forces detained 21 Palestinians during pre dawn raids on Wednesday in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, according to the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS).

Some 600,000 Jewish settlers live in the occupied West Bank and Arab east Jerusalem under Israeli military protection, alongside almost three million Palestinians who consider their presence part of an Israeli government policy of land theft upheld by a system of apartheid.

Many Palestinians have embraced Tamimi as a symbol of resistance to Israel's 50-year military occupation.

Clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces are continuing after US President Donald Trump last month recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Shevah is the only Israeli killed during that time period.
