According to Israeli sources, a rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning shortly after Israeli occupation forces killed six Palestinian in an incursion into the conflict–ridden Jenin in the occupied West Bank.
Six Palestinian youths were killed by Israeli forces, the Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed. Their names are Muhammad Wael Ghazzawi, 26, Majd Muhammad Azmi Husayniyeh 26, Tariq Ziyad Mustafa Natour, 27, Ziyad Amin Al–Zarini, 29, Abdel Fattah Hussein Kharousha, 49, and Moatasem Nasser Sabbagh, 22.
This attack by Israeli forces in the West Bank comes after a week in which Israeli settlers conducted a destructive attack in Huwara, located near Nablus.
Last week, Israeli settlers launched an assault that resulted in the burning of Palestinian homes and businesses, resulting in one fatality and about a dozen people being wounded.
Last night, thousands of Palestinians in Gaza and the occupied West Bank held demonstrations to express outrage at the Israeli massacre in Jenin.
For several months, Israeli occupation forces have conducted military operations in the West Bank, with a particular focus in Nablus and Jenin.
In 2023, Palestinian records indicate that Israeli forces killed more Palestinians in the occupied West Bank than in any year since the Second Intifada.
Since the beginning of 2023, 64 Palestinians in the occupied Palestinian lands have been killed in Israeli attacks, including 15 children.
