The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that 8 civilians, one of whom was in a critical condition, were wounded by Israeli occupation forces’ bullets during their raid on Aqabat Jaber camp, south of Jericho.
Israeli military vehicles stormed the camp from several sides, with snipers deployed on rooftops in the camp, and raided the homes of a number of citizens.
The occupation forces closed all the entrances to the camp and prevented the residents from entering or leaving it, as well as preventing medical personnel’s cars from entering.
According to Israeli sources, the army is carrying out a military operation in the camp to arrest those allegedly wanted by the security services.
In Nablus, a Palestinian youth was wounded by live bullets, and 3 others by shrapnel.
The homes of the people of the village of Burqa, north of Nablus, were also raided by settlers, who fired poisonous gas at the residents, causing dozens of suffocation with poisonous gas.
Settlers, under the protection of the occupation forces, attacked citizens’ homes on the western side of the village and burned a sheepfold and olive groves. Clashes broke out with the residents who tried to confront them.
This attack comes hours after the visit of a high-ranking delegation from the European Union to the village, which strongly condemned the settler attacks and the Israeli government’s allowing settlers to return to Homesh settlement, which is established on the lands of Burqa village.
For months, the West Bank has witnessed a remarkable escalation as a result of Israeli incursions and arrests. Last April, thousands of settlers, led by two Israeli ministers and accompanied by army units, participated in a demonstration in the village of Beita, near Nablus, to demand the establishment of more settlements.
It is noteworthy that a 15-year-old Palestinian boy was shot dead by the occupation army in Aqabat Jaber camp.
