Israeli occupation forces injure 3 Palestinians in the Aqabat Jabr camp with live ammunition as a shooting operation targets a settler near the Hawara checkpoint in Nablus.
Three Palestinians were injured after Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the refugee camp of Aqabat Jabr in Areeha on Wednesday targeting residents with live ammunition, according to sources in Palestine.
A large force of Israeli troops, supported by dozens of military vehicles, raided the camp and stationed themselves at its center. The IOF surrounded and raided several homes, damaging residents' belongings.
Eyewitnesses said that the occupation forces broke into the house of the martyr Jibril Kamal Al-Lada'a and also stormed the residence of Samir Al-Titi.
Confrontations broke out between youthful residents and the occupation forces following the raid, as rubber tires were set on fire blocking rodes, in protest of the aggression.
