One Palestinian woman injured, 6 youths arrested in the West Bank
Israeli occupation forces' crimes against Palestinians continue as the IOF conduct a campaign of raids in Nablus and Al-Khalil.
Israeli occupation forces arrested, today, Tuesday, 6 Palestinians from Jenin and Al-Khalil in the occupied West Bank, in a series of raids launched by the IOF targeting the two cities.
In Jenin, the IOF arrested three Palestinian youths from the town of Ya`bad, southwest of Jenin, in the northern occupied West Bank.
Security sources reported that the IOF arrested the freed prisoners, Youssef Qais Amarneh, Muhammad Jihad Abu Bakr, and Ahmed Walid Badarneh, after storming the town and raiding the houses of their families.

In Al-Khalil, the IOF arrested three Palestinian youths, Obeida Atef, Muhammad Salim, and Baraa Al-Titi, after storming their houses in Al-Aroub camp, north of Al-Khalil.
In the meantime, a woman was injured, after midnight, as Israeli settlers attacked an ambulance at Jenin Governmental Hospital.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health said, in a brief statement, that settlers attacked the Jenin Governmental Hospital ambulance as it was passing from Za'tara, transporting a sick 12-year-old girl from Jenin Governmental Hospital to the intensive care unit of the "H-Clinc" hospital in Ramallah.

The statement added that the mother of the child was injured as a result of the settlers breaking the windows of the ambulance, which still managed to reach Ramallah and have the patient transferred to the ICU.
This comes as the Palestinian Red Crescent Society reported over the weekend that illegal Israeli settlers launched raids in Huwara, Nablus, violently assaulting Palestinians while the Israeli occupation forces were preventing ambulance crews from making it to the scene.
The arbitrary, repressive crimes by Israeli occupation forces and settlers against Palestinians have led to an escalation in Resistance acts. Israeli media reported on Sunday that two settlers were killed with an M-16 rifle in a shooting operation near the town of Huwara, Nablus, in the occupied West Bank.

And just yesterday, an illegal Israeli settler was killed after he was shot during a resistance operation in the Jordan Valley, Al Mayadeen correspondent reported on Monday, noting that the Palestinian who carried out that operation has so far carried out five similar ones in the same area.
On February 24, Palestinian youth, Muhammad Jawabreh, succumbed to his wounds at dawn after being shot by Israeli occupation forces, yesterday, in Al-Arroub camp, north of Al-Khalil.
Just two days earlier, Israeli occupation forces committed a massacre in Old City in Nablus, whereby 11 Palestinians were murdered and more than 100 were injured in confrontations that erupted between Palestinian Resistance fighters and Israeli occupation forces after the latter stormed the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus.
