Israeli soldiers killed one Palestinian Saturday morning and injured at least thirteen, during an invasion of the Jenin refugee camp in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli army has confirmed that its soldiers invaded the refugee camp before surrounding the home of Ra’ad Hazem, who was killed by the army, before dawn Friday, nine hours after killing two Israelis and injuring several others in Tel Aviv. One of the injured died from his wounds on Friday afternoon.
Many armored military vehicles surrounded the refugee camp before invading it from several directions.
The soldiers surrounded a compound owned by Hazem’s family to abduct his father and several family members before exchanging fire with Palestinian resistance fighters in the area.
Local sources said the soldiers invaded several buildings outside the refugee camp and used their rooftops as sniper posts.
The sources added that the soldiers exchanged fire with resistance fighters in the refugee camp before killing one and wounding at least five others.
Medical sources at the Jenin governmental hospital said the soldiers killed a Palestinian resistance fighter, identified as Ahmad Nasser Sa’adi, 23, after shooting him with two live rounds in the head and chest.
The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, said Ahmad was one of its members, adding that he was killed in a fire exchange with the soldiers who invaded the refugee camp.
The sources have confirmed that the soldiers shot thirteen Palestinians with live ammunition in the refugee camp, including a young woman, 19, , before they moved to Jenin and Ibn Sina Hospitals.
Dozens of Palestinians also protested the invasion and the killing of the young man and hurled stones at the soldiers who fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.
The Palestinians also used loudspeakers in the local mosques, calling to protect the refugee camp and defend it from Israeli occupation soldiers’ invasion.
The Israeli army said it is ongoing an offensive into Jenin, Jenin refugee camp, and Burqin village, west of the city.
