In a separate incident, a sixth Palestinian was killed on Sunday morning by Israeli forces’ bullets in the village of Yatma, south of Nablus in the West Bank.

She explained that the dead young man was Uday Misbah Sanubar (30 years old), while sources in the Palestinian Red Crescent reported that the young man Sanubar was hit with live bullets in the face, during confrontations with Israeli forces after storming the village, and he was taken to the hospital, where he died later, as a result of his injury. .

Later, the Palestinian Health Ministry said that a teenage boy was the seventh to be killed within 24 hours, noting that he was killed in the city of Al-Bireh in the middle of the occupied West Bank.

Yesterday, Saturday, 4 Palestinians, including a child, were killed, and 6 others were injured by live bullets, during the Israeli forces’ storming of the city of Jenin and besieging the Martyr Khalil Suleiman and Ibn Sina Governmental Hospitals.

Large Israeli army forces, accompanied by a military bulldozer, stormed the city of Jenin from several directions amidst firing bullets. They surrounded the government hospital, the headquarters of the Red Crescent Society, and Ibn Sina Hospital. They destroyed and searched the kiosks in front of the hospital, and deployed their snipers on the roofs of some high-rise buildings.

The occupation bulldozers also bulldozed several streets in the city’s neighborhoods, the outskirts of the Jenin camp, and the square, and raided a number of homes in the Jabriyat, Al-Hadaf, Talat Al-Ghabz, and the outskirts of the camp, and destroyed a large number of cars and infrastructure.

The city witnessed an intense flight of reconnaissance aircraft, in addition to an intense deployment of Israeli forces in the neighborhoods of Jenin and the Haifa Street area to the west, which cut off electricity to a number of Jenin neighborhoods and the surroundings of the camp, where “Energy” shells were fired at several homes after their owners were removed from them, on the outskirts of the camp. .

The occupied West Bank is witnessing an escalation in tensions even before the outbreak of the Israeli war on Gaza, following the Hamas attack on the settlements surrounding Gaza on October 7.

Since that date, more than 230 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army or settler fire in various areas of the West Bank, and more than 2,950 have been injured, according to statistics from the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
