Israeli occupation forces suffocated today, Thursday 26, 2023, dozens of Palestinian citizens with tear gas, during confrontations that erupted with the residents of Tulkarm.
Local Palestinian sources reported that confrontations broke out between the Palestinian citizens and the occupation forces near the gate of the Israeli apartheid wall in the north, in condemnation of the massacre committed by the occupation forces in Jenin and its camp.
Other confrontations also broke out between the Palestinian citizens and the occupation forces, west of Tulkarm, during which the occupation soldiers fired gas bombs intensively, causing suffocation injuries.
It is noteworthy that the occupation forces stormed, today, the Jenin refugee camp, killing 9 Palestinians and injuring dozens.
It was the deadliest single Israeli raid on Jenin over two decades. The flare-up in violence poses an early test for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right government and casts a shadow on U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s expected trip to the occupation’s state next week.
On 26 January, extremist Israeli National Security Minister, Itamar Ben Gvir, called for establishing an “Israeli National Guard” to prepare the country for a new “imminent” war with Palestinians.
The Jewish supremacist minister made the statement after the Israeli occupation forces massacred 10 Palestinians during a violent raid in Jenin and its refugee camp in the occupied West Bank.
It’s noteworthy that these provocative acts come amid the escalating atmosphere, especially after the formation of the new Israeli Government as daily violations against Palestinian citizens, deliberate detentions, house demolitions, and mandatory deportation policy are doubled and multiplied in a way to suffocate and complicate Palestinian lives.
