January; the bloodiest in the West Bank since 2015
The Palestinian Ministry of Health stated that “January is the bloodiest month in the West Bank since 2015,” as 35 Palestinians were martyred, including 8 children and an elderly woman, by the gunfire of Israeli occupation forces and illegal settlers. Jenin saw the most number of martyrs, which is 20, falling at IOF hands since the beginning of the year.”
The Ministry indicated that "the injuries that were recorded on the bodies of the martyrs revealed that all the shootings were concentrated in the upper parts of their bodies, mostly to the head."
The occupied West Bank and Al-Quds are witnessing intensive confrontations with the occupation forces lately, following the aggression against Jenin and its camp, which resulted in the martyrdom of 10 Palestinians, including an elderly woman.
Just yesterday, Omar Tariq Al-Saadi, 24, succumbed to the wounds he sustained a few days ago during the Israeli raid on Jenin.
Dozens of Palestinians suffocated, yesterday evening, during violent confrontations that erupted with the Israeli occupation forces in Jabal Mukaber in occupied Al-Quds, while an Israeli soldier was injured from stone throwing during confrontations in Silwan.
