Palestine (Imemc): Israeli forces killed four Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, three in the city of Jenin, the Palestinian Health Ministry said on Thursday morning and one on Wednesday evening in Deir Dibwan town, east of Ramallah.
Israeli soldiers clashed with Palestinians during raids, injuring several people in Jenin
The invasion was carried out by dozens of armored military vehicles, including bulldozers before the soldiers stormed and ransacked many homes and occupied rooftops to use as sniper posts and monitoring towers.
A Palestinian cab driver said he saw several Israeli military vehicles at a distance and noticed the undercover Israeli soldiers at an intersection nearby before he saw the soldiers shoot one of the Palestinians not far from his car.
He added that he saw another Palestinian killed by the soldiers not far from where the soldiers fatally shot the first young man.
The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the slain Palestinians as Sidqi Siddeeq Zakarna, 29, from Jenin city, Tareq Fawzi Ad-Damaj, 29, from Jenin refugee camp, and Ata Yassin Shalabi, 46, from Qabatia town, south of Jenin.
One of Ata’s relatives said the young man worked at an Israeli factory in a colony near Al-Jalama and was heading to his work when he saw a car that had the bodies of Sidqi and Tareq and rushed to try to help them, but just as he reached the car, the soldiers shot him with a live round in the head, three in the chest and three in the back.
Palestine TV said the soldiers shot Sidqi with several live rounds before one of the military jeeps sped toward and ran over him.
It added that the soldiers fired several live rounds at a Palestinian ambulance transporting a wounded Palestinian and that the driver was almost killed when the soldiers fired live rounds at its windshield.
Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement, said it injured some Israeli soldiers near the Jenin refugee camp.
Israeli authorities haver not yet commented on the developments.
In the Wednesday killing, the Health Ministry said Israeli soldiers killed Mojahed Mahmoud Hamed, 32, from Silwad town, east of Ramallah.
It added that the soldiers chased the young man, opened fire at him, and took him to an unknown destination before the Israeli side later informed the General Authority of Civil Affairs that the young man had died from his wounds.
The Health Ministry added that the army initially refused to allow the transfer of the corpse of the slain young man to the Palestinians, but later all handed his body to a Palestinian ambulance before he was moved to Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah.
The Israeli occupation army claimed the soldiers “neutralized a suspect who opened fire at their military post from a speeding car.”
The army alleged that the soldiers “pursued the car and fired at the suspect who was driving while firing at the soldiers” and that the army initiated a search campaign “looking for more suspects” and added that no soldiers were injured in the incident.
The soldiers also invaded Kafr Ein village, northwest of Ramallah, leading to protests, before shooting a young man with several live rounds in the chest, pelvis, and thigh; his wounds have been described as moderate-to-severe.
The number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since the start of 2022 has reached 216; 164 killed in the West Bank and 52 in the besieged Gaza Strip.
