The occupation forces have been escalating their attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank recently, and today, the occupation forces arrested 3 young men in the village of Deir Jarir, east of Ramallah.
Al Mayadeen correspondent in Ramallah reported serious injuries during the repression of young Palestinians by the occupation forces in the town of Qarawa Bani Hassan near Salfit in the West Bank.
The occupation forces also raided the home of the family of the martyr Kais Imad Shajaia (23 years old), who was killed last night near the Jalazoun camp for allegedly carrying out a shooting operation near the illegal "Beit El" settlement.

The Israeli occupation aggression on Palestinians continued today as three young Palestinian men were arrested in the east of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank after besieging a house, following confrontations that erupted during which the occupation soldiers fired bullets and tear gas canisters.

Local security forces reported, as quoted by the Palestinian Wafa agency, that "the IOF arrested Birzeit University student Muhammad Nidal Odeh Shujaiya (19), Muhammad Mustafa Salha (23), and Mahmoud Nasser Al-Burji (25), after brutally raiding the homes of their relatives."
For days, confrontations between Palestinians and the Israeli occupation forces continued in several areas in occupied Al-Quds and the West Bank, prompting Palestinian Resistance fighters to confront the occupation.
Yesterday Friday, two Palestinians were killed, a doctor and a 20-year-old, and six others were injured, during confrontations that erupted between Israeli occupation forces and Palestinians following an Israeli raid on the Jenin refugee camp.
Local sources reported that Israeli Special Forces infiltrated Jenin, and snipers were stationed on the rooftops confirming that the occupation forces prevented any ambulance from reaching the site of injuries.
A few days ago on Thursday, illegal Israeli settlers attacked Palestinians in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, east of occupied Al-Quds, and vandalized their private properties, such as smashing the windows of their vehicles, under the heavy protection of Israeli occupation forces.
The attack on Sheikh Jarrah was initiated by Knesset member Itamar Ben-Gvir, who stormed the neighborhood along with the Israeli settlers as he held out his personal pistol.
