My stomach sinks when I hear that a co-worker has turned up the radio loud.

The current report is that there is still fierce fighting in Jenin. In Nablus and elsewhere, the Jihad/Fatah folk surrendered, but in Jenin they're apparently determined to fight on to the bitter end. Thirteen IDF soldiers(all reservists) have been killed - some by booby-trapped buildings. The Red Cross/Crescent has refused to evacuate the Palestinian casualties - apparently for political reasons. See the report here.
