Tulkarm brigade attack Israeli checkpoint, casualties recorded
The Israeli occupation forces were engaged by Palestinian Resistance fighters as the latter opened fire on an Israeli checkpoint in Tulkarm.
The Tulkarm Battalion, which is affiliated with the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, announced that it attacked an Israeli military checkpoint at the Tayyiba Crossing, west of Tulkarm, using assault rifles.
The Tulkarm Battalion underlined that there were casualties recorded among Israeli occupation soldiers in the attack.
"One of our units, with the help of God, carried out a shooting operation at 04:05 PM today, targeting an Israeli military checkpoint at the Tayyiba Crossing, west of Tulkarm, with a heavy barrage of bullets. There were several shots that landed on target," the statement read.
This operation was conducted in response to the assassination of the martyr and freedom fighter Ayed Abu Harb.
Violent confrontations erupted across the West Bank provinces on Friday, during which several Palestinians were injured by live ammunition and rubber-coated bullets. Many suffered from suffocation due to the IOF's deployment of tear gas indiscriminately.
The confrontations erupted after the Israeli forces entered the village and launched tear gas canisters toward the residents.
Local sources reported that Israeli soldiers raided the homes of citizens, occupied their rooftops, and set up snipers on them.
Abu Harb was martyred, while another Palestinian was injured in violent confrontations with the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF), at dawn on Tuesday, as they stormed the Nour Shams camp in Tulkarm in the Occupied West Bank.
As the IOF stormed the Nour Shams camp, the Palestinian Resistance confronted them and defended Tulkarm. Amid these fierce confrontations, Ayed Abu Harb, 21 years old, was shot in the head by the IOF, leading to his martyrdom, while another was severely injured.
Moreover, sources in the camp reported that the Resistance fighters detonated an explosive device in an IOF bulldozer as it carried out acts of sabotage in the Nur Shams camp in Tulkarm.
The IOF also damaged the memorial of martyr Seif Abu Labde in the center of Nour Shams camp in Tulkarm.
In the wake of the raid on the refugee camp in Tulkarm, the IOF withdrew from the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank following a fierce confrontation with Resistance fighters, an Al Mayadeen correspondent reported.
Occupation forces had initiated an incursion into Jenin camp, sparking intense clashes with Resistance fighters who swiftly engaged the invaders with live fire and locally manufactured explosive devices.
Al-Quds Brigades - Jenin Brigade announced that they successfully downed and captured an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that had been flying over the camp to assist the intruding occupation troops. They also said that they targeted occupation vehicles at the camp's outskirts with a barrage of bullets and previously planted Improvised Explosive Devices.
