Palestinian killed in Israeli raid on Jenin in occupied West Bank
The ministry initially said that "two martyrs arrived at the Jenin government hospital", as the Israeli military announced an ongoing operation in the city's refugee camp.
The ministry later revised the death toll, saying one person was killed.
Twenty people were injured, with one person in a "very critical" condition, the ministry said.
The army did not immediately comment on casualties when contacted by AFP.
Israeli forces used live fire on Palestinians in the Jenin camp, the official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.
Dozens of Palestinians have been killed in recent months during near-daily Israeli raids across the West Bank.
Two Palestinian teenagers were shot dead Saturday during a raid in Jenin, while a 12-year-old boy died Monday from wounds sustained last month, according to a health ministry toll.
Israel recently stepped up military operations in Jenin and elsewhere in the West Bank, which it has occupied since 1967.
The pursuit of the Jerusalem gunman has prompted a massive operation inside the city's Shuafat refugee camp, which has severely impeded daily life.
Palestinians went on a day-long general strike earlier this week in the city, in solidarity with Shuafat residents.
