Three Palestinian martyred and at least 29 wounded in Israeli forces raid on Jenin camp.
According to international media reports, the raid began early Monday morning, with Israeli soldiers storming the camp, firing live ammunition, stun grenades and toxic gas.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health has identified the victims as Khaled Darwish, 21, Qassam Sariya, 19, and Ahmed Saqr, 15.
Large Israeli army units raided the city and camp, sparking confrontations with Palestinians, during which the soldiers fired live bullets and sound and toxic gas canisters.
Jenin’s deputy governor, Kamal Abu al-Rub, told reportes the Israeli forces had launched the raid at around 04:00 am (0100 GMT).
“The army stormed the (Jenin refugee) camp and the city after the dawn prayer in large numbers, and there was intense gunfire,” he said.
Israel’s military alleged that it had launched the raid on Jenin to detain Palestinians suspected of attacks and that troops had exchanged fire with gunmen, hitting several of them.
Video circulated on social media showed an explosion enveloping an armored vehicle as shots rang out. Another clip showed an Israeli army helicopter launching missiles on the town.
