By Awad al-Rujoub
RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA): Two Palestinians were killed in an Israeli military raid in the West Bank city of Jenin on Saturday, according to the Ministry of Health.
A ministry statement said 11 other Palestinians were injured in the raid in the Jenin refugee camp, including three seriously.
According to local residents, clashes erupted in the camp when Israeli forces pushed deep into the area.
Undercover Israeli soldiers first invaded Jenin and Jenin refugee camp, then dozens of armored military vehicles invaded the refugee camp from several directions, leading to protests, according to imemc.org.
Medical sources at Ibn Sina Specialist Hospital in Jenin said the soldiers killed Mahmoud Moayyad Sous, 18, after shooting him with a live round in the neck and added that the soldiers also shot seven Palestinians, three seriously.
One of the seriously wounded Palestinians, Ahmad Mohammad Hussein Daraghma, 24, from Tubas in the northeastern West Bank, succumbed to serious wounds he suffered during protests in Jenin city.
Medical sources at the Jenin governmental hospital said Ahmad suffered serious gunshot wounds to the head and succumbed to his injuries.
Ibn Sina hospital said an Israeli army jeep rammed Anwar Abu as-Siba’ and his daughter, Eman, while standing in front of their home in the refugee camp.
The Quds News Network said the soldiers fired live rounds at its correspondent and other Palestinian journalists in the refugee camp and surrounding areas.
The official Palestine TV said Israeli forces raided the house of former detainee Mohamed Abu Zeina before withdrawing from the area.
An Israeli military statement said its forces carried out “preventive” operations in the West Bank, including the arrest of Islamic Jihad leader Saleh Sameer Abu Zeina.
On Friday evening, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Israeli soldiers shot and killed two children, Adel Ibrahim Adel Daoud, 14, and Mahdi Mohammad Ladadwa, 17, and injured dozens of Palestinians near Qalqilia and Ramallah, in the northern and central parts of the occupied West Bank.
More than 114 Palestinians killed by Israel since the beginning of the year in the occupied West Bank alone, and a third of those have been killed in Jenin,
The Israeli army frequently carries out wide-ranging arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with Palestinian residents.
