A fierce battle broke out in Jenin on March 7 when an Israeli force stormed the West Bank’s refugee camp to hunt down a Palestinian man blamed for a recent deadly shooting attack.
Palestinian officials said that the man, 49-year-old Abdel Fattah Hussein Kharousha, was killed in the operation. The Israeli Shin Bet security agency said that Kharousha, a Hamas member from the Askar refugee camp near Nablus, was the gunman who opened fire on an Israeli car in the northern West Bank town of Huwara on February 26, killing two Israelis.
The operation was carried out by a large force from the Israeli Defense Forces and Police, backed by several drones as well as attack helicopters.
A local wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Jenin said its fighters opened fire and also hurled explosives at the Israeli force in Jenin.
Palestinian fighters also shot down two Israeli drones. One of the drones was a military-grade Thor quadcopter that was developed by Flying Production, now a part of Israeli defense giant Elbit Systems, for reconnaissance operations. The drone offers a range of ten kilometers and an endurance of up to 75 minutes when equipped with a dual electro-optical/infrared light-weight payload.
According to Palestinian health officials, at least six people were killed in the battle, and another 12 were wounded, three seriously.
The Israeli Police said three officers of the elite Yamam counter-terrorism unit were wounded during the operation. They were taken to the Rambam hospital in Haifa. One of the wounded was listed in moderate condition, while the other two were slightly hurt.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the force that “eliminated the despicable terrorist who murdered the two brothers in cold blood.”
The operation led to tensions around the Gaza Strip. Just a few hours after the operation, a rocket that was launched from the Palestinian enclave landed in Israeli territory, close to the separation line.
Later on March 8 morning, Palestinians fighters set off an explosive device near Israeli soldiers operating on the line with Gaza. Israeli battle tanks fired shells at an observation post of the Hamas Movement, the de-facto ruler of the strip, in response to the attack.
The operation in Jenin was the most recent in a series of Israeli raids in West Bank cities that left dozens of Palestinians dead or wounded in the last few months. More escalation is to be expected not only in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but also in Jerusalem.

1. The Splitting of The Camp of Moses and the loser jew faggots is a pending immediate inevitability.
2. Ri R Raffing Rahahaha, ahahaha
Moses is Obviously buried in Camp Moses.
All opposed to The Camp of Moses, are all little jew faggots and should be gassed and holocausted like edomites and filistines.
Note that nuttyahoo said the despicable terrorist who killed two brothers
Noting when innocent Palestinians are murdered that language is never used as Palestinians are not classed as Israeli under their own government
They class Palestinians as non people even though it is their Palestinian land they are squatting on
they are throwing grenades blindly shoot at houses and doors, yea no this is just a terror raid done under the excuse of following one man. Any counter force was clearly defensive going by the clearly careless raid in densely populated areas.
Izreal, “why do you make us have to keep killing you when taking your land”?
Palestinians are REAL SEMITES
Khazars are just … Khazars (i.e. Fake Semites)
Way to go Israel! Keep up the good work and slaughter those vile shit-stinking pigs.
Those vile shit stinking swine are all khazar jews and you non Aryan slav azov fake nazis.
Israel is beyond the reach of khazar swine, ahaha.
You do talk some complete utter fucking deranged and utterly deluded shit don’t you? SouthFront must be very proud.
Why the Palestinians had no defense spotters who warn as the parasites are komming kloser? Why the Palestines are not organised to put bobytraps, to trac the parasites in a corner and then exterminate them? Why the Palestines are not inventif to make teams who realy can kill those parasites? Why the ¨Palestines are not making “crofty bombs” that hurts verry bad the parasites who got this stuf in the face, all over them. When parasites enter a road, you had to make a barrage and close it whit bus or trucks once they are all entered the road. Then trew all explosifs and fire bombs over them. Try to isolate a parasite, kill him and you have uniform and arms and there communication radios. Do something real bad to the occupiers !!!
Look at that fool at 0:15, he throw a granade and it bounces back to him. What a hero!
The filthy khazari squatters in apartheid occupied Palestine pretend that murdering children and old people is some kind of glorioUS war and proudly record their barbarism to show the world. This garbage is the lowest form of life on the planet alongside the treacherous Golem scum in the USSAN gubermint that has turned USSA into a seething open sewer to feed the joo gutter rats in Palestine. This abscess on the asshole of humanity must be lanced and cured permanently before Nutnyahoo and his thugs destroy the entire ME with their illegal weapons.
Long live the Semitic people of Palestine and to hell with eastern Europeon khaZar scum.
