'Israel' says it needs another 24 hours for 'Jenin operation'
The Israeli occupation says it needs another 24 hours in Jenin to conclude its aggression on the occupied Palestinian city.
The Israeli occupation forces need an additional 24 hours to complete the operation they started in the occupied West Bank early on Monday, an informed source told Reuters hours after the operation started.
The Israeli occupation forces have repeatedly declined to disclose the amount of time the operation will take, only revealing that it would take longer than one day and that the IOF would stay on the ground for as long as necessary.
The Israeli occupation forces announced at dawn the launching of a large-scale military operation targeting the city of Jenin and its refugee camp, north of the occupied West Bank.
Israeli Army Radio said the decision was made in order to "subvert Jenin's armed infrastructure and detain its elements," with Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper citing the same objective.
Israeli media reported that Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is receiving urgent reports on the "operation" and that the aggression is being led by the commander of the West Bank Brigade in the occupation army, Avi Blut.
According to a number of Israeli media outlets, the decision was made to begin the aggression on the city of Jenin and its refugee camp following the Palestinian Resistance's use of explosives during the last IOF aggression on the city, on June 19.
US supports 'Israel'
As the Israeli occupation forces are massacring Palestinians in Jenin through nearly all means available to them and in violation of international law, the United States, the occupation's closes ally, was quick to voice support for "Tel Aviv".
The White House is closely following the situation in the West Bank, where the Israeli occupation forces launched drone strikes on the city of Jenin as part of one of the largest aggression on the West Bank in 20 years, a spokesperson said Monday.
"We have seen the reports and are monitoring the situation closely," a White House spokesperson said. "We support Israel’s security and right to defend its people against Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other terrorist groups."
In response to the ongoing Israeli aggression against Jenin and its refugee camp, the Palestinian Presidency considered that the Israeli occupation forces' assault on the city is yet another war crime against the Palestinian people.
The spokesperson for the Palestinian presidency, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, stressed in a statement that "what the Israeli occupation government is doing in the city of Jenin and its camp is a new war crime against our defenseless people."
Abu Rudeineh underlined that the Palestinian people will not surrender or raise the white flag, and "will remain steadfast on their land in the face of this brutal aggression until the occupation is defeated and freedom is achieved."
