Palestinian Resistance confronts IOF storming in northern West Bank
Israeli occupation forces shell a residential house during the raid on Nur Shams refugee camp in Tulkarm and arrested several Palestinians.
Israeli occupation forces stormed Nablus and the Nur Shams refugee camp in the occupied West Bank amid heavy confrontations with Palestinian Resistance fighters.
The Israeli occupation's storming of Palestinian cities at the crack of dawn is commonplace as part of its systemic policy of terrorizing the Palestinian people.
The occupation forces fired tear gas grenades and rubber bullets at the Palestinians during raids which left 39 injuries, as per the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.
The IOF also shelled a residential house during the raid on Nur Shams refugee camp in Tulkarm and arrested several Palestinians.
IOF systematic raids: A life trauma
A couple of days ago, The Washington Post published an investigative report highlighting the brutality of Israeli forces in targeting Palestinian civilians, especially children.
The newspaper report underlined the fact that Israeli raids have long been a fixture of life for Palestinians living under occupation; typically, they would be carried out swiftly at night and end in detainment.
IOF systematic raids peaked under the current government of Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. By mid-May, 108 Palestinians, including 19 children, were murdered by the IOF in the West Bank and Al-Quds, the newspaper reported citing UN reports.
Most notable in the report was an attached video graphic recreation of an IOF raid on Jenin in mid-March, which led to the death of four Palestinians, including a 14-year-old child.

The investigation synchronized 15 video clips collected from cameras of shops in the vicinity, in addition to a three-dimensional (3D) video graphic constructed based on the testimonies of nine witnesses.
The raid saw Israeli occupation forces charging down the street with AR-style rifles and a handgun before opening fire and firing more than 20 bullets, killing two Palestinians who did not appear to be armed, which the Israeli occupation claimed were "militants".
The Washington Post quoted several experts as saying the Israeli storming was a violation of the international ban on extrajudicial killings and that the violation is exacerbated by the fact that those the occupation claimed were armed posed no threat to the IOF. One notable aspect is the fact that the Israeli occupation carried out the killing amid a heavy presence of civilians.
