On Wednesday, dozens of armored Israeli military vehicles invaded the areas surrounding the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank city of Jenin and surrounded a home before firing a missile at it, in addition to shooting at least nine Palestinians, two seriously.
Palestine TV said the armored military vehicles, including two bulldozers, surrounded the family home of Ra’ad Fathi Khazem, 29, who, on April 8, 2022, was killed by Israeli forces while hiding near a mosque in Jaffa, before an armed drone fired a missile at it.
The army said its soldiers invaded Jenin to arrests Ra’ad’s father and his brother and alleged that the brother is responsible for firing live rounds at soldiers of the Israeli Combat Engineering Corps near the Al-Jalama roadblock two weeks earlier.
The home is at the entrance of the refugee camp, and the army fired the missile at it without invading the refugee camp because it was expecting heavy armed resistance.
The attack led to protests in several parts of Jenin before the soldiers targeted the Palestinians with live fire and fired many rounds at ambulances and medical teams trying to evacuate wounded Palestinian.
Dr. Wisam Bakr, the director of Khalil Suleiman governmental hospital in Jenin, said the soldiers shot two Palestinians with live fire in the chest and the head, inflicting life-threatening wounds, in addition to shooting at least two seven young men. Palestine TV said one of the wounded is the brother of Ra’ad Hazem.
The soldiers also closed the Jenin refugee camp and surrounding areas and attacked Palestinian journalists to prevent them from entering the city to document the invasion and the unfolding events.
Eyewitnesses said the soldiers invaded several tall buildings and ransacked them before occupying their rooftop to use them as firing posts for their sharpshooters.
The sharpshooters on top of the buildings, and others hiding behind trees and homes, fired many live rounds at Palestinian protesters, including many rounds toward journalists and press vehicles.
Palestinian children in schools in the invaded area in Jenin and Jenin refugee camps were told to hide under the desks and behind the concrete walls in their classrooms due to the intensity of Israeli army fire, especially the sharpshooters.
School administrations said they advised the children to remain in their educational facilities because of the ongoing invasion and the extensity of Israeli army fires in the streets.
Salam Taher, the director of the Education Ministry in Jenin, said many children suffered severe anxiety attacks, and added that the children in classes on the upper floors were taken to the lower levels to avoid direct Israeli army fire.
She added that the schools are taking all precautionary measures to ensure the safety of the children and staffers in the schools.
Furthermore, the army deployed dozens of additional soldiers, closed and surrounded Jenin city, and deployed many armored vehicles to surround several areas, especially near and around the Jenin refugee camp.
Reports remain scarce due to Israel’s isolation and closure of the Jenin refugee camp and the fact that the army is preventing journalists and medics from entering it.
Ambulances, medics and journalists are trying to enter the refugee camp, but the soldiers continue to prevent them and are threatening to target them with live fire.
Armed military drones are still flying over Jenin and Jenin refugee camp.
