Al-Khalil operation leaves 1 dead, 6 injured
The Israeli media confirm a shooting operation near the house of far-right MK Itamar Ben-Gvir in Al-Kahlil, occupied West Bank.
Israeli media reported Saturday that an illegal Israeli settler died and that more than 6 others were wounded in a shooting near "Kiryat Arba", near the home of far-right MK Itamar Ben-Gvir, in the occupied West Bank.
The Palestinian who carried out the operation in "Kiryat Arba," Muhammad Kamel Al-Jabari, has been martyred. He was the brother of the liberated prisoner, Wael Al-Jabari, who was exiled by the occupation to the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli Channel 13 reported that MK Itamar Ben- Gvir said that "the shooting operation in "Kiryat Arba" took place less than 100 meters from his house."

According to local media sources, the attacker confronted soldiers for five minutes after he conducted his operation. Several settlers were hit and injured during the operation, and given the gravity of one of the casualties' situation, a helicopter was called to transport and treat them.
The Israeli Maariv website reported that "shots were fired at the house of MK Itamar Ben Gvir," noting that "the operation took place three days before the elections, as security guards ordered the family members not to leave the house."
