    NBC, Universal
    Israeli Army bulldozers demolished a building following an army operation in Jenin.

    An Israeli raid to arrest a Palestinian militant sparked a gunbattle that ended with a West Bank home being bulldozed, officials said.

    The Israeli Defense Forces said clashes broke out during a multiagency operation to arrest a "senior Hamas operative" in the city of Jenin.

    Israeli officials did not name the target. However, the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency said Israeli forces had surrounded a house belonging to the Hamas-affiliated Abu al-Hija family.
