JERUSALEM (CNN) -- Israeli forces killed three members of the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad during a raid in the West Bank town of Jenin Wednesday morning, Israeli and Palestinian sources said.

According to an Israeli military spokeswoman, Israeli soldiers entered Jenin and tried to arrest Ashraf Saadi, a senior member of Islamic Jihad, as he was walking with two other members of the group. The spokeswoman said Saadi saw the soldiers and fired on them.

In returning fire, the soldiers killed Saadi and the other two militants, the spokeswoman said. An Israeli soldier was lightly wounded in the exchange.

Israeli security sources said the militants were involved in terror activities.

Palestinian security sources' accounts said Israeli undercover soldiers in a car, and backed by jeeps, opened fire on the militants as they were walking along a street, killing them.
