Israeli Airstrikes Kill West Bank Palestinians Amid Unchecked Assault on Gaza

HeadlineOct 23, 2023

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli warplanes bombed a mosque in the Jenin refugee camp Sunday, killing at least two people. Camp residents said the airstrike came in the dead of night without warning.

Ali Aldamag: “Most people were asleep, and some were awake, when we saw a light and heard a loud explosion. We rushed to the scene, where we saw killed and injured people, and we moved them to the hospital, thank God. This is what happened.”

Separately, Israeli forces killed five more Palestinians in raids across the occupied West Bank overnight, arresting dozens of people. Similar raids this month have killed at least 95 Palestinians while doubling the number held in Israeli jails to more than 10,000 people.

Meanwhile, Israel continued to strike Hezbollah targets inside Lebanon. Netanyahu has warned that any efforts by Hezbollah to join the war would be “devastating” for Lebanon.
