Israeli Forces Clash with Palestinian Resistance Fighters in Jenin, West Bank

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Palestinian resistance fighters engaged in a battle with Israeli army forces in the Jenin region of the occupied West Bank on Wednesday.

The clashes come amidst a recent surge in Israeli violence against Palestinians across the occupied territories. A video circulating online showed fighting and shooting between the Palestinian fighters and Israeli soldiers who attacked the town of Qabatia in the south of Jenin city. In response, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Battalions, the military wing of the Fatah movement, announced that fierce clashes had taken place between them and Israeli forces in the city of Qabatia.

The Israeli regime has made great efforts to control the situation in the West Bank, particularly in the Jenin camp and Nablus, to arrest “wanted” Palestinian fighters and youths. However, these raids have been met with strong resistance from Palestinian fighters. Israeli analysts have constantly warned about the consequences of the growth of resistance movements in Tel Aviv.

On Tuesday, Israeli troops, accompanied by bulldozers, stormed the camp, triggering violent confrontations with local residents. The regime’s forces deployed several snipers on the rooftops and surrounded a house in the camp. Additionally, Israeli forces prevented medics from the Palestinian Red Crescent from entering the camp and even opened fire at an ambulance. The Palestinian health ministry said eight Palestinians were wounded during the raid, adding that they were transferred to the hospital after sustaining injuries in the limbs.

Israel has increased attacks on Palestinian towns and cities throughout the occupied territories over the past few months. Dozens of Palestinians have lost their lives, and many others have been arrested as a result of these attacks.
