Earlier in the night, a large Israeli military force, accompanied by two D9 bulldozers, launched an incursion into Jenin. The forces carried out searches and raids in the vicinity of the Ibn Sina Hospital, the Zahra neighborhood in the city, and the outskirts of the Jenin camp. Snipers were deployed in these buildings and houses.
Additionally, Israeli bulldozers engaged in extensive excavation activities on the outskirts of the Jenin camp, damaging streets, infrastructure, and the main water supply pipeline to the camp.
Israeli occupation forces further sealed off the roads leading to the camp using earthen barriers, attempting to isolate it, especially from the adjacent city of Jenin.
With the tragic losses of Abu Al-Haija, Al-Amer, and Al-Turki, the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank since October 7 has risen to 109, with over 1,900 individuals sustaining injuries.
