Across the city and into the West Bank, the Israeli occupation forces were also assaulting Palestinians in the West Bank, with one Palestinian child suffering injuries after the IOF shot him in Jenin.
Mohammad Marwan Talal, 12, was shot by the IOF while he was near the settlement wall built on the lands of the village of Al-Arqa, south of Jenin, local sources reported.
It is worth noting that at least 92 Palestinians, including children, have been killed by Israeli occupation forces since the beginning of the year.
According to the same sources, medics rushed to the site to tend to the child whose injuries were described as "moderate".
The Israeli occupation issued orders to demolish two Palestinian homes in Ramallah and Nablus, in the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli occupation forces stormed Wednesday dawn Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Al-Quds and removed a banner - displayed in solidarity with the Resistance - from the courtyards of the mosque, which resulted in electrical wires being cut off in one of the Mosque's gates.
Concurrently, IOF hysterically searched a Palestinian vehicle in the vicinity of Bab Al-Sahira.
The occupation forces also launched wide-ranging raids and arrests that targeted cities in the occupied West Bank, including Jenin, Nablus, Nahaleen, Beit Lahm, Areeha, and Ain Al-Sultan camp, as well as Al-Ram village, northeast of Al-Quds, and Ras Shehadeh neighborhood in the Shuafat refugee camp.
