Palestinian Resistance fighters confront Israeli Occupation Forces as they raid Aqabat Jaber camp in Ariha, Occupied Palestine.
Israeli Occupation Forces raided Aqabat Jaber camp, Ariha, at dawn on Thursday, but were confronted by the Palestinian Resistance, resulting in a multitude of injuries.
Soon after Palestinians confronted the raiding IOF units, the latter imposed a security cordon on the camp. In turn, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that 8 injured Palestinians arrived at Ariha Government Hospital, with live bullets, in their lower extremities. The ministry also highlightd that among the injured, one was in a critical condition.
Local sources reported that the IOF, reinforced with military vehicles, stormed and surrounded about 30 houses, carried out searches, and caused damage to property.
Moreover, Resistance fighters confronted the storming occupation forces, while the latter positioned snipers on the rooftops of civilian homes and called on a number of Resistance fighters, besieged in one of the homes, to surrender.
The IOF stormed the house of Sheikh Jamil Abu Raya near the Abbasiya Mosque, and fired 3 rockets at one of the besieged houses, while simultaneously preventing the press from covering the events.
On the other hand, Israeli media claimed that a group of occupation soldiers were participating in a large-scale operation in Aqabat Jaber camp in Ariha, to “arrest a large number of wanted persons.”
