Israeli Forces Kill 3 Palestinians in Jenin Raid 

HeadlineDec 08, 2022

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces shot and killed three Palestinians during an early-morning raid on the city of Jenin and its refugee camp. Two others were wounded by gunfire, one of them critically. It was the latest in a series of near-daily raids by Israel on Palestinian communities. A local official accused Israeli snipers of firing indiscriminately.

Atta Abu Rmeileh: “Snipers were all over the buildings and on rooftops inside the city and the refugee camp. They were targeting anything that moved. Also soldiers in military vehicles were shooting. Even an ambulance was targeted.”

The Red Crescent showed reporters several bullet holes in an ambulance they said had been used to transport a wounded person. Schools, businesses and stores have shut down across Jenin today in a general strike to protest the killings.
