Israeli occupation forces killed six young Palestinian men and wounded many others in less than 24 hours, in the occupied West Bank and in the besieged Gaza Strip.

A young Palestinian man was killed on Wednesday morning in the Aqabat Jabr camp in the occupied West Bank city of Jericho, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement.

Dhargham Mohammad Yahya Al-Akhras, 19, was shot and killed during an Israeli military raid into the refugee camp. The Ministry said in its statement that he succumbed to the critical wounds he sustained after being shot in the head by Israeli forces.

Earlier on Wednesday, another young Palestinian man succumbed to the wounds he sustained during the invasion of the Jenin refugee camp on Tuesday night.

The Ministry of Health confirmed that the victim has been identified as Yasser Atta Musa, 29, from the village of Marka, south of Jenin.

On Tuesday evening, three Palestinians were killed and over 30 others were injured following an Israeli military attack on the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank.

The bloody attack on Jenin began when a large number of Israeli occupation forces surrounded a house while firing rockets toward it.

As the house was set ablaze, fierce clashes ensued throughout the camp, as fighters from all Resistance groups tried to ease the siege imposed on Palestinian families entrapped in the targeted neighborhood.

The victims were identified as Rafat Omar Khamayseh, 22, Mahmoud Ali Saadi, 23, and Mahmoud Khaled Ararawi, 24.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old Palestinian, Youssef Salem Radwan, was killed and another 11 Palestinians were wounded when the Israeli military attacked Palestinian protesters near the fence separating Gaza from Israel.

Palestine Chronicle correspondent in Gaza said that Palestinian protesters have gathered near the fence for the last three days, protesting against the repeated raids on Al-Aqsa mosque by illegal Israeli Jewish settlers.
