Palestinian sources reported that an armed group opened fire on the IOF as they raided Burqin, noting that the area spanning Ya'bad, Salim, Kafr Dan, and AL-Yamun has seen extensive Israeli military activity since the early morning hours.
The IOF has been blocking the main entrance to Burqin for nearly an hour, and it has mobilized support, including a sniper. The entire area has been closed off by IOF military patrols. The Israeli action has been met by resistance from the Palestinians, as they have opened fire on the occupation from several locations. Several explosions have been heard from the town.
A few days ago, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that the people of Jenin had responded to the Israeli occupation forces by opening fire in several areas of the city.
Earlier, following the demonstrations that took off from Jenin Camp and several Palestinian areas in support of the Gilboa Prison escapees, Hamas and PIJ warned the IOF against harming the people of the camp.
