Lions' Den mourns Jenin martyrs, urges Palestinians to take to streets
Addressing the Israeli occupation, the Lions' Den says "the series of revenge for the martyrs is not over just yet."
The Lions' Den Resistance group on Tuesday mourned Abd Al-Fattah Kharrousha, the Palestinian who carried out the Huwara shooting operation that killed two illegal Israeli settlers.
The group also mourned five other Palestinians who were killed by Israeli occupation forces during the latter's storming of the Jenin refugee camp, raising the number of Palestinian martyrs since the start of 2023 to 74.

In a statement, the Lions' Den called on the Palestinian people to take to the streets at exactly 12:00 am, so that the whole world could hear the voice of Jenin and its camp.
The Resistance group underlined that "the series of revenge for the martyrs is not over just yet" and addressed the occupation, saying that in broad daylight, on foot, with an uncovered face, Abd Al-Fattah Kharrousha infiltrated the heart of the Israeli security system.
On its part, Al-Qassam Brigades called on all its fighters to escalate armed resistance against the Israeli occupation and mourned the martyrs of the Jenin storming.
Earlier, six Palestinians were martyred and at least 26 others were injured during confrontations with Israeli occupation forces who stormed the Jenin refugee camp and simultaneously stormed Nablus, where they arrested a number of Palestinians.
Local Palestinian sources said a special Israeli force infiltrated the outskirts of Jenin using a camouflaged truck, while military vehicles headed from the Al-Jalama checkpoint toward the camp, besieged a house on Mahyoub Street, and bombed it with missiles, as helicopters and drones participated in the aggression.

Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said a number of its fighters were martyred while confronting the crimes of the occupation and reported several injuries among occupation forces, stressing that the Israeli crimes will be answered in "Tel Aviv".
The stormings of Jenin and Nablus came a few hours after illegal Israeli settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque under the protection of Israeli occupation soldiers.
