'Eli' operation described as 'very harsh' by Israeli media
The Fida'i shooters managed to kill four Israeli settlers and injure another four near the "Eli' settlement in the West Bank, angering Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir who described settlers as ducks in a shooting field.
Israeli media outlets have described the Fida'i operation near the "Eli" settlement in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday as extremely "harsh."
Israeli Channel 13 quoted the occupation emergency services as saying that "the Operation was very harsh, and the injuries were caused by a large number of bullets" which killed and injured several settlers.
The Israeli media outlet also pointed out that the operation was carried out despite the heightened alert and preparedness of Israeli security apparatuses, after their blatant failure in Jenin on June 19.
The channel further quoted the occupation's Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, who visited the site of the operation, saying, "The settlers have turned into ducks on the shooting range," as he added that "it is time to carry out a military operation in the West Bank."
In addition, the Israeli Kan channel indicated that since the start of the year, 147 significant operations have taken place in occupied Palestine, including about 120 shooting operations.
Israeli media outlets confirmed the death of four settlers and the injury of another four as a result of the Fida'i operation in the West Bank. According to Channel 13, the shooter fired a large number of bullets from an M-16 assault rifle at settlers.
Israeli media outlets circulated the name of the martyr Muhannad Faleh Abdullah Shehadeh as the Fida'i who completed the operation. Shehadeh is 23 years old and also a resident of the town of Urif.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent said that the Israeli occupation forces also fired at a car in the city of Tubas, resulting in the martyrdom of Khaled Mostafa Abel-Latif Sabah, also from the town of Urif, as the IOF claimed that Sabah also took part in the operation.
It is important to note that the "Eli" settlement was built on lands belonging to the Palestinian villages of As-Sawiya and Qaryut in 1984.
