Israeli media have reported “understandings” between the PA and the occupation forces to arrest resistance fighters in areas of the West Bank.
In response to the PA’s arrest of people wanted by the Israeli occupation authorities, Resistance fighters fired bullets at the presidential headquarters in Jenin.
Gadoun was wounded by shrapnel during his arrest in September 2020, when Israeli special forces stormed the Jenin camp and blew up the gate and walls of his house.
He and his brother were sleeping meters away from the explosion and were injured as a result. They were arrested formally while on ambulance stretchers.
HGadoun was sentenced by the Israelis to 22 months in prison and suffered from medical negligence. His mother died during his detention.
