Israeli Forces Kill 6 Palestinians In Latest Raid

At least six Palestinians have been killed and 11 wounded by Israeli forces in a raid on the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, according to the health ministry of the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Among the wounded, two had serious injuries, the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Israeli army said “security forces are currently operating in the Jenin [refugee] camp” in the northern West Bank, but gave no further details. The situation was still ongoing.

Witnesses told Al Jazeera that a house was besieged and hit with heavy weaponry. Footage circulating on social media showed helicopters over a column of military vehicles entering the city.

Israeli authorities said one of the Palestinian men they killed was suspected of shooting two brothers from an illegal settlement near the Palestinian village of Huwara last week, according to Israel’s Channel 12 news.

The raid on Jenin is ongoing. “At the same time, another raid is being carried out in another refugee camp, just south of Nablus,” said Al Jazeera’s Sara Khairat, reporting from Ramallah.
