Wearing a press vest, Palestinian Shireen Abu Akleh, 51, was shot in the head during her coverage of the incursion and was transferred to Ibn Sina hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Another journalist named Ali Asmoadi, who works for the Jerusalem-based Al-Quds newspaper, was also injured by a gun shot and is in a stable condition.
According to the report, a group of six journalists, including Abu Akleh, were together when they came under fire from Israeli snipers.
The group of journalists, there to cover the raid, came under fire at the main entrance to Jenin refugee camp, near the main roundabout.
There was a gunfight in the alleyways of the camp, but this area is far from the roundabout – fighters don’t go there because there is no cover – and far from the house of the person Israeli forces wanted to arrest.
Multiple eyewitnesses confirmed Abu Akleh was shot shortly after arriving in Jenin refugee camp and that there had been no fighting in the area, said Al Jazeera.
Rights groups condemned the “blatant murder” of Abu Akleh, calling it a “heinous crime, through which it is intended to prevent the media from fulfilling its message”.
