Two children killed

Palestinian health authorities say that at least eight people were killed and 24 others were injured. RTL News Middle East correspondent Bibin Nagtzam says Jenin is a city in the West Bank where resistance to Israel is strong. “Since October 7, it has been the target of brutal raids by the Israeli army.” A total of 77 attacks have already been counted.

In addition to the doctor, a teacher and two minors aged 15 and 16 were also killed. Nagzam said that a number of journalists were injured. Israeli settlers have carried out numerous attacks on the occupied West Bank for some time:

The attack began yesterday at eight in the morning. “People were on their way to work and school,” Helland-Hansen said. The city has been invaded by troops, tanks and drones. Ambulance driver Hazem Masarwa told Reuters that undercover forces suddenly entered the area and started shooting. “They shot everything that moved.”

According to Nagtzam, there is great resistance from the Palestinian side. He added, “There is fierce fighting. It is a huge operation for which hundreds of Israeli soldiers have been deployed.”

The Israeli army surrounded Khalil Suleiman Hospital, where the dead doctor worked. Hospital director Wissam Bakr said: “It seems we are going through difficult times.”

The situation is annoying

Heavy bulldozers destroyed roads in the city of Jenin. “This often happens because of attacks,” says project coordinator Helland Hansen. “People who need urgent medical care cannot get to the hospital in time.” Due to numerous attacks, the health care situation in the West Bank has become increasingly bad.

The Israeli army said that the attacks targeted militants in the city, which “has become a center for armed groups such as Hamas, Fatah and Islamic Jihad,” Reuters reported. The army says that a number of Palestinian militants have been neutralized.
