Four Palestinians were killed on Tuesday as Israeli occupation forces bombed a group of youths with a drone in the city of Jenin, in the occupied West Bank.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA cited the director of the Jenin Hospital, Dr. Wissam Bakr, as saying that four youths were killed, and one was wounded, after being directly targeted by a drone.

The victims were identified as Rafiq al-Dabbous, Mahmoud Abu Srour, Bakr Siddiq Zakarneh, and Thaer Abu al-Tin.

Dr. Bakr added that the occupation aircraft dropped smoke bombs in the hospital yard, as the occupation forces prevented the transfer of Abu Al-Tin to Jenin Hospital, forcing ambulance crews to transfer him to the health center in the town of Qabatiya.

Since the early morning hours, Israeli forces surrounded the Ibn Sina, Jenin Governmental, and Al-Razi hospitals, and prevented ambulances from transporting the slain Palestinians.

Israeli forces destroyed the roundabout of the slain prisoner Kamal Abu Waar in the Jabriyat neighborhood in Jenin and caused damages to the infrastructure.

According to WAFA correspondent, the father of the slain youth Bakr Zakarneh suffered from a stroke after receiving the news of his son’s killing. He reportedly lost another son, who was killed by Israeli forces on December 8, 2022.

The Director of Jenin Education, Salam Al-Taher, announced that schools in the city of Jenin and its camp will turn to e-learning due to the presence of Israeli troops.

Israeli forces are still preventing press crews from entering the areas where raids are occurring.

Israeli occupation forces stormed the city and the camp, accompanied by several military bulldozers from Jenin-Nazareth Street, amid confrontations in several areas, as occupation soldiers and snipers occupied residential buildings in several city neighborhoods.
