Dozens of Palestinian civilians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation during clashes with the Israeli occupation forces in the village of Rummana, west of Jenin.

In response to this and the ongoing violations of Palestinian rights, Palestinian resistance fighters fired two rockets from Jenin into Israel, marking the first time that rockets have been fired from the West Bank. No injuries or damage were reported from the rockets.

The Wafa news agency reported that the Israeli occupation forces stormed the village of Rummana on Monday, which led to clashes, during which the forces fired tear gas and stun grenades.

Dozens of civilians suffered the effects of the poisonous tear gas, and were treated at the scene.

Later, the Israeli occupation forces seized a house under construction in the village of Rummana, and turned it into an observation point. The house belongs to Rami Abdel-Razzaq Abu Hammad.

In addition, the Israeli occupation forces stormed the villages of Jalboun and Faqqu’a, northeast of Jenin, which led to clashes between young men and those forces.

The occupation forces also intensified their military presence south and west of Jenin.

This invasion comes a week after a massive invasion of Jenin refugee camp, during which Israeli forces killed eight Palestinians and wounded 91.
