Israeli soldiers also broke into people’s houses and ransacked them.
Confrontations broke out between Palestinian youths and Israeli forces, who prevented medical crews and ambulances from entering the camp.
In a statement released on their Telegram channel, the Tulkarm Brigades Resistance groups said that the Israeli occupation forces “attempted to assassinate our fighters in a major military operation at dawn today”. The group stated that they managed to thwart the operation, by “detonating several explosive devices directly targeting the occupation’s vehicles in multiple areas.”
