The ministry blamed Israeli fire for the dawn gunshot that wounded Dalia Samoudi, 23. She died at the hospital in the afternoon.
Palestinian media said Samoudi was wounded while standing at her window as Israeli troops were firing tear gas and gunshots during a confrontation with residents of the city's Jaberyat neighborhood during the raid.
The Israeli army said hundreds of Palestinians had instigated the violence, fired live fire and hurled rocks and explosive devices at troops conducting a "routine operation” in Jenin. The Israeli soldiers responded with "riot dispersal means.”

The military made no mention of any Palestinian casualties.
The Palestinian Authority exerts sovereignty on limited parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank, but the Israeli army routinely enters the Palestinian-controlled areas for raids and searches.
The deaths on Friday came as thousands of Palestinians held protests at several sections of the Israel-Gaza border fence. Gaza's health ministry said 38 others were wounded by live fire.
