Israel’s military has launched air raids on the Jenin refugee camp, in the northern occupied West Bank, carrying out an ongoing attack that involved a missile and the killing of at least four Palestinians.
According to reports, Israel launched at least ten air attacks in Jenin early on Monday, sending smoke billowing from the wreckage of buildings.
A convoy with dozens of Israeli armoured vehicles also surrounded the refugee camp from all sides and launched a ground military operation, causing heavy damage to homes and roads.
The health ministry said a 21-year-old Palestinian, Mohammad Hasanein, was killed overnight by the Israeli army at the northern entrance to the city of Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank.
The ministry is yet to identify the four people killed in Jenin.
At least twenty-seven other Palestinians were injured in the camp, including eight in severe condition.
