B.M | DOP -


Israeli occupation forces IOF invaded the Jerusalem town of Al-Issawyia and detained several Palestinians, including a woman, on Friday, February 10.

Palestinian local sources reported that Israeli occupation forces invaded the house of the slain Palestinian Hussein Qaraqe’ in Al-Issawyia.

The sources said that Israeli occupation forces detained his wife, father, and brother. Confrontations broke out in the area as a result.

In addition, Israeli occupation forces attacked Palestinians in Al-Issawyia with tear gas canisters. However, No injuries were reported.

Earlier on Friday, Israeli occupation forces shot dead Hussein Qaraqe’ after he carried out a ramming attack in the Israeli bus station.

Israeli media said that two Israelis were killed and five others injured due to the attack. Three of the injuries were described as serious.

The ramming attack came following a series of Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

On Friday morning, the Palestinian prisoner Ahmed Abu Ali died in Israeli prisons due to deliberate medical negligence practiced by Israeli occupation authorities.

In a related development, Israeli occupation forces attacked Palestinian worshipers near Wadi Qaddum building in the Jerusalem town of Silwan.

Palestinian families gathering to pray the Friday prayer in front of the Wadi Qaddoum building, threatened with demolition by Israel, as an act of solidarity with its owners.

Israel has killed about 43 Palestinians in occupied Palestine so far in 2023. As a result, Palestinian resistance escalated attacks against Israeli soldiers and settlers.

As part of Israel’s collective punishment policy, Israeli security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir threatened to carry out a military operation in occupied Jerusalem.
