Four Palestinians were killed in the early hours of Monday in a new Israeli army assault on the northern West Bank city of Jenin, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the victims as Amir Abdullah Sharbji, 25, Nawras Ibrahim Bajawi, 28, Waem Iyad Hanoun, 27, and Mousa Khaled Jabarin, 23.

At least nine other Palestinians were wounded.

Local sources said about 100 army vehicles raided the city of Jenin. They deployed around Ibn Sina Hospital and on the rooftops as a drone was flying overhead and shooting in all directions.

An Israeli army bulldozer also demolished part of the hospital’s outer wall and roads leading to the Jenin refugee camp, placing dirt mounds to separate the camp from the city.

An Israeli drone fired a missile at a home injuring one person and causing damage to the house. Several other missiles were fired in the camp.

Fierce clashes erupted with the Palestinian resistance groups in the city. The Al-Quds Brigades in Jenin said in a statement that “injuries and casualties were reported among the enemy’s ranks after a widespread counter-operation conducted by the brigade.”

In a video released by the Al-Quds Brigades, Palestinian resistance fighters are seen detonating an explosive device towards Israeli bulldozers at the entrance of the Jenin refugee camp.

The Israeli army also destroyed several shops and buildings in Jenin, along with the Horse Roundabout statue. The monument, in the shape of a horse, was made from the remains of an ambulance that was bombed by the Israeli army in 2002.
