Palestinian youth confronted the Israeli forces using gunfire and IEDs that targeted the occupation.
The Israeli occupation's storming of Palestinian cities at the crack of dawn is commonplace as part of its systemic policy of terrorizing the Palestinian people. On Thursday morning, Israeli occupation forces raided the Aqabat Jaber camp, Ariha, before they were confronted by the Palestinian Resistance, resulting in a multitude of injuries.
Soon after Palestinians confronted the raiding IOF units, the latter imposed a security cordon on the camp. In turn, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that eight injured Palestinians arrived at Ariha Government Hospital, with live bullets, in their lower extremities. The ministry also highlighted that among the injured, one was in critical condition.
Local sources reported that the IOF, reinforced with military vehicles, stormed and surrounded about 30 houses, carried out searches, and caused damage to property.
