“Israel” Storms Jenin, Martyrs Three Palestinians
The official Palestinian news agency WAFA, citing the director of Jenin’s government hospital, Wissam Bakr as saying, reported that three Palestinians were martyred and at least 15 others injured on Thursday evening, when “Israeli” troops stormed the city of Jenin and its refugee camp, a densely populated urban area.

Bakr identified the three victims as Ibrahim Taher Muhammad al-Saadi, 21; Issa Nafez Jallad, 17; and Uday Ayman Marei, 24.

Bakr added that the wounded have been transferred to several medical facilities, including Jenin’s al-Razi and Ibn Sina hospitals.

WAFA said a convoy of “Israeli” army vehicles, including bulldozers, entered the area backed by Apache attack helicopters.

The report said “Israeli” army tanks belonging to special forces destroyed stands belonging to local vendors, and shot bullets towards the main electrical transformer in the camp, which resulted in a power outage.

Hospitals were surrounded and emergency services were prevented from reaching the injured, it added. At least two people were detained as well.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society [PRCS] said its paramedics dealt with eight wounded people during the raid, including five who were shot with live bullets and two who suffered shrapnel wounds.

The al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement, said in a statement that its fighters were engaged in “violent clashes” near the Jenin refugee camp.
