Sunday after midnight, Israeli soldiers invaded the Jenin refugee camp, in the West Bank city of Jenin, and exchanged fire with resistance fighters of the Al Aqsa Brigades, the military wing of Fateh, and the Al Quds brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad.
The Palestinian news website reported that soldiers, supported by armored vehicle and a military bulldozer, invaded the camp and engaged in fierce gun battles with resistance fighters in several neighborhoods, including the eastern entrance of the camp which was blockaded by the fighters with tires and rocks.
Soldiers stopped dozens of vehicles and detained the residents after forcing them to clear the tires and rocks from the street.
Soldiers installed several roadblocks at the entrances to Jenin and barred the residents from entering or leaving the city.
This is the second time in less than 24 hours that the Israeli army invaded into Jenin and its refugee camp. Army sources reported that the attacks were aimed at arresting fighters of the military wing of the Islamic Jihad.
