The PIJ released a statement saying that this incident is not a "passing" incident, and renewed calls for people in the West Bank to retaliate swiftly to the occupation's repeated crimes against the West Bank's freedom fighters, stressing that allowing the Resistance to grow in the occupied West Bank and rejecting security cooperation with the occupation is the way prevent the occupation from harming the Palestinian people.
Israeli media reported that four IOF soldiers were injured in the incident, one of whom was gravely wounded but stable, while the three others were lightly wounded. Al Mayadeen's bureau chief in occupied Palestine also reported that the three young men resisted against IOF soldiers before they were martyred.
