Today, Thursday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health reported that four Palestinians were killed and 23 others were wounded by Israeli forces who stormed Jenin in the northern West Bank.
The ministry said in a statement on Facebook that four of the injured are in serious condition.
A special force entered
The Palestinian News Agency said that a special force from the Israeli army entered the city center of Jenin.
The agency added that the forces brought military reinforcements to the city of Jenin and its camp, and began firing live bullets at citizens and their homes.

On the other hand, TV (i.24) quoted a spokesman for the Israeli army as saying that a military operation is now underway in the Jenin camp.
Violence and tension
It is noteworthy that the violence was escalating in the West Bank, after the Israeli forces raided a refugee camp in the city of Jenin in the West Bank, last week.
Tensions increased, especially in the areas of Nablus and Jenin, which are strongholds of armed Palestinian factions, where Israeli forces intensified their raids following bloody attacks against Israelis in March and April.
The United Nations figures also indicate that more than 100 Palestinians were killed, in the largest death toll in the West Bank in nearly 7 years.
