Security sources fear West Bank escalation: Israeli media
Israeli media reports that fear is soaring over an escalation in the West Bank, citing Sheikh Jarrah oppression as a catalyzer.
Israeli security sources are highly concerned about an escalation in the occupied West Bank, Israeli media reported Tuesday, linking the fears to the latest events in Sheikh Jarrah and the latest operations conducted by members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Fatah.
"Security sources linked tensions that have been soaring for a while here, and the developments in Sheikh Jarrah, which were an influential factor that caused the [Israeli occupation] forces to increase their level of alertness and deployment," Israeli Channel 12 military affairs commentators said.
According to the commentator, the security sources are saying the biggest test is the upcoming Friday prayers.
Another Israeli commentator said the latest developments in Sheikh Jarrah were the catalyzed that has the most Palestinian media coverage, "And they are definitely a particularly dangerous situation."
"One of the most dangerous issues we are facing is the shootings at night, and they are particularly happening in the northern West Bank, in Jenin, and Nablus and those behind them are PIJ and Fatah members," he added.
A third location, he said, was the Gaza Strip. "We heard about threats, and they are not scared of another Guardian of the Walls."
As Israeli concerns grow, the Israeli occupation forces murdered a Palestinian teen Tuesday afternoon in Nabi Saleh, occupied West Bank.
The killing took place during confrontations between the Israeli occupation and Palestinians who were fending off the forces who had been trying to storm the village and detain several civilians while assaulting them.
However, locals identified him as 19-year-old Nehad Bargouthi, making him the second teen to have his life stolen at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces within a few days, as the latter killed a 17-year-old Mohammad Abu Salah in Jenin.
The Israeli occupation forces are constantly violating Palestinian all across the occupied territories.
Dozens of Palestinians from occupied Al-Quds staged a sit-in in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood this evening in solidarity with the Salem family and in protest against the provocations of Israeli Knesset member Itamar Ben-Gvir.
Residents of occupied Al-Quds reported that several civilians were wounded during the ongoing confrontations between Palestinian youths and the Israeli occupation forces in the area.
The European Union called on "Israel" to stop settler violence in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied Al-Quds, warning against "irresponsible provocations" in what they described as a "sensitive area."
