Israeli occupation forces detained Saturday, March 1, 6 Palestinian citizens, one of them was critically wounded, in Aqabat Jaber refugee camp, south of Jericho.

Local Palestinian sources reported that the occupation forces detained a Palestinian young man this afternoon after he was shot and wounded, and his injury is “very critical.”

The sources pointed out that the occupation forces prevented the Palestinian ambulance crews of the Red Crescent from transferring the injured Palestinian to the hospital and detained him with serious injuries.

For its part, the Palestinian Prisoner Club said that the Israeli occupation forces detained six Palestinian citizens from the Aqaba camp, including four brothers and the son of one of them, who was wounded during the military operation that they carried out today.

The Israeli forces stormed the Aqabat Jabr camp, and surrounded a house, before withdrawing completely from the camp.

As a result, violent confrontations broke out between Palestinian young men and the occupation soldiers, who fired live bullets and tear gas canisters at Palestinian civilians, causing injuries.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society reported that its medical crews dealt with 3 bullet wounds, one of which was serious in the abdomen.

It noted in a statement that the Israeli occupation forces “obstruct the arrival of ambulances to the camp.”
