Ramallah, June 12 (IANS) Six Palestinians were killed by the Israeli army in the village of Kafr Dan, northwest of Jenin in the northern West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.


Israeli special forces sneaked into the village and cordoned off a house, as army reinforcements were deployed in the village, sparking confrontations, the Palestinian official news agency WAFA reported on Tuesday.


The soldiers asked a young man inside the house through loudspeakers to turn himself in and fired shoulder-fired missiles towards the house, WAFA added.


The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement on Tuesday that it eliminated four armed "terrorists" and located four guns that belonged to the "terrorists" in the area of Jenin, Xinhua news agency reported.


"During the counterterror activity, the soldiers encircled a structure used by terrorists in the area.
