Nine Palestinians, including an elderly woman, were killed and several were wounded when Israeli troops stormed the Jenin refugee camp in northern West Bank on January 26.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement that its troops launched an operation in Jenin to foil “imminent attack plans” by the local wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). According to the military, three members of a PIJ cell were killed and a fourth was arrested. No Israeli soldiers were hurt in the clashes, the IDF said.
“During an attempt to arrest them, the wanted men opened fire and were killed in an exchange of fire with our forces,” the IDF said. “The wanted men, PIJ operatives, have been involved in recent extensive terror activity, and are suspected of carrying out several shooting attacks against IDF forces, and planning other significant attacks.”
The military said that the raid against the PIJ cell’s hideout in the camp was launched following “accurate intelligence” provided by the Shin Bet security agency.
An IDF officer told reporters that troops used shoulder-launched rockets and other explosives against the hideout, in a tactic known as “pressure cooker,” to force PIJ fighters out.
From its side, the PIJ said its fighters in Jenin opened fire on the Israeli troops and detonated explosive devices during the clashes. As a result, several vehicles of the IDF were damaged and had to be towed out form the camp. A small Israeli drone was also downed.
The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry said in a statement that nine Palestinians were killed, with 20 more wounded, including four listed in critical condition. The fatalities included a woman, identified as 60-year-old Magda Obaid. The IDF was probing her death, an Israeli military source said.
The IDF attack on Jenin was condemned by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who announced three days of mourning over the deaths of the nine Palestinians.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to hold an assessment later in the day on the operation. The IDF is reportedly preparing for an escalation in other areas as well, including the Gaza Strip and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City.
Tensions has been on the raise in the West Bank since last year. This month, at least 29 Palestinians were killed in Israeli operations within the occupied region. Jenin was the main focus of many of these operations.
The Jews are using the cover of the conflict in Ukraine to get away with more war crimes against the Palestinian civilian population this is also to quash news in Israel itself about corruption involving senior Israeli government officials including their head of state with protests against Israeli government corruption same as in Ukraine
Israel is in trouble, thanks to the war in Ukraine Iran has amassed enough enriched uranium for five nukes. Slava Bashar Hafez al-Assad. Slava Putin.
Israel exist only because the Jews control the west since they control the banks. Read the Balfour declaration of 1917. Israel wasn’t created in 1949. Think about it : In the name of History, the west gave the right to the antic Israel to be rebuild but when Mussolini wanted to recreate the antic roman empire…. WORLD WAR 2 !!!! Fuck these zionist pigs.
1) Destituir a Mahmmoud Abbas del poder, él recibe financiación de Israel para que la Agenda Palestina de constitución del Estado Palestino sea postergada indefinidamente.
2) Eleción de un Presidente de ANP pro-Resistencia Palestina y no pro-diálogo con Israel.
3) Fabricación de mísiles y drones por los palestinos de Cisjordania.
4) Envio de armas, metrallas y equipamentos de tecnología sofisticada a los palestinos de Cisjordania.
5) Entrenamiento de Snipers o francotiradores palestinos de Cisjordania. Una vez que existan francotiradores, empezarán las justas muertes de soldados israelíes genocidas y colonos judíos ladrones de tierras.
Israelis are dying from boorla and their bio medical poison: so to distract the people in israel they create incidents of war to keep their minds off the unprecedented death and low birth rates.
The people there don’t realize that their real enemy is hiding behind medical bureaucracy. It is genocide and boorla knows it. Rise up and save yourselves oh rabbis of israel.These people are going to remove us all from the earth. Fight back. Any means possible.
The animal in charge of the police is a Zionist maniac who has a conviction for racism,its a full blown Fascist State.
Now would be the time for one of those Javelin missiles that Russia seized in Ukraine to accidentally appear in Gaza
The khaZar filth squatting in apartheid, occupied Palestine will be destroyed. There can be no doubt whatsoever that will come to pass. Now that USSA is being whipped in rump Urapland and the freeloader fiat filth (formerly Pentacon “backed”) IOU Saudi Mercan toilet paper dollah is being rejected and flushed, who will fund the welfare warfare sub human abomination in Israhell? Nobody that is who so the evil pariah and criminal enclave will be wiped from the face of the Earth. Imagine flocks of beautiful Iranian drones coming to hunt the vermin that up to now have never faced a real army, the evil IDF being an “army” of thugs that can only attack and slaughter civilians. When the rump Ukrapland war is over and Russia decides to clean up the skirmish in Syria then Israhell will burn. It all comes down to MONEY and resources and Israhell has neither having grown accustomed to living off USSAN tax cattle handouts. After rump Ukrapland is denaZified, naZi Israhell’s turn will come and the entire ME wil be reconfigured post Onkel Schmuel.
