Palestine Slams US for Supporting Israel in Attacks on Gaza, West Bank
In a statement published by Palestine's official news agency WAFA, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesperson for the presidency, said the Israeli government and its army continued their "crimes" in Palestinian territories as a result of the "continued and unjustified support" provided by the US.

He said that the American support for Israel, including financial aid, weapons, and the shielding from accountability for its "crimes", "pushed Israeli leaders to commit more crimes in Northern Gaza and Rafah",

He also warned of the danger of ongoing Israeli attacks on the Palestinians from the Southernmost city of Rafah to the city of Jenin in the Northern West Bank.

Earlier in the day, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported that seven Palestinians were killed and 12 others were injured during an Israeli operation in Jenin. Among the injured, three were in critical condition and have been hospitalized.

Palestinian security sources said that Israeli soldiers conducted a raid on Jenin and its refugee camp on Tuesday, resulting in an exchange of gunfire between Palestinians and Israeli forces in the refugee camp and several neighborhoods of the city.

Eyewitnesses told Xinhua that Israeli bulldozers continued to demolish infrastructure near Jenin Governmental Hospital and in the city's neighborhoods.

Since October 7, 2023, Israelis have killed 513 Palestinians in the West Bank, including 127 from Jenin, according to official Palestinian statistics.
