Late on Sunday night, Israeli soldiers invaded the Eastern neighborhood of Jenin city, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, killed a child while standing on her home’s rooftop, injured a young man, and abducted three.

The attack occurred before midnight Sunday when undercover soldiers following many several armored military vehicles invaded Jenin.

Sources at the Khalil Suleiman Hospital in Jenin said the soldiers killed Jenna Majdi Essam Zakarna, 16, after shooting her with live fire in the head.

Jenna’s family said the soldiers fatally shot her while standing on the rooftop of their home in the Eastern Neighborhood.

Her family added they found her body on their rooftop after the soldiers withdrew from the city.

Hundreds of Palestinians marched carrying the corpse of the slain child while chanting for liberation, independence and ongoing resistance against the illegal Israeli occupation.

The soldiers also stormed and ransacked many homes before abducting Hasan Ahmad Mer’ey, 30, Tha’er Jihad Hanthawi, 40, and his brother Mohammad, 33.

Furthermore, the soldiers caused damage to several parked cars and a shop during protests that took place in the Al-Bayader area in Jenin.

The Israeli army claimed it arrested a Palestinian reportedly “planning attacks against the soldiers and Israeli targets.”

Furthermore, the Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers also shot a young man with a bullet in the leg before he was rushed to Ibn Sina Specialized Hospital suffering mild-to-moderate wounds.

Also, Palestinian resistance fighters exchanged fire with Israeli soldiers who invaded Jenin and again while withdrawing from the city.

The Shehab News Agency has reported that a Palestinian man died Friday dawn from serious wounds he suffered in August of this year, 2022, during the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip.

It said Nabil Shallah, 59, from the Sheja’eyya neighborhood east of Gaza city, has died from his wounds at a hospital in the coastal region.

The Palestinian man suffered life-threatening wounds when the Israeli army fired missiles at homes and buildings near Abu Samra Mosque in the Sheja’eyya neighborhood.

The Israeli offensive on Gaza started with the assassination of Taiseer Mohammad al-Ja’bari, 50, a senior leader of the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, when the Israeli air force fired missiles at Burj Falasteen (Palestine Tower) in the center of Gaza City, on August 5th, killing many civilians in the apartment building and wounding dozens.

The Palestine Tower has thirteen floors and many government offices and media centers. The bombing also caused damage to many surrounding buildings, stores, and commercial facilities.

The three-day offensive on Gaza led to the death of 49 Palestinians, including fifteen children and four women, and caused 360 injuries, including 151 children and 58 women; many of the injured suffered life-threatening wounds.

Earlier Friday morning, Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats with live fire and gas bombs near the shores of the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.
