An IDF force protecting the Border Police unit making the arrest felt that the lives of security forces were under threat, and opened fire at their attackers, the IDF said.
Video images from the scene showed two IDF jeeps being ambushed by Palestinians on rooftops and at street level, hurling large rocks and other heavy items from multiple directions.
The wanted suspect, said by the IDF to be a terrorist, was arrested and taken for questioning.
Offical Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted hospital sources in the West Bank as saying Rubin Zayed, Jihad Aslan and Younis Jamal Jahjouh had been killed in the clashes. An additional fifteen Palestinians were wounded in the incident, according to Palestinian medical sources.
The Police and IDF were investigating the circumstances of the clash.
