On Monday, Israeli soldiers invaded the Aqabat Jaber refugee camp in Jericho city in the northeastern West Bank, killed a young man, injured three, and abducted three, including two siblings.

Jihad Abu Al-Asal, the governor of Jericho and the Northern Plains, said the soldiers fatally shot Suleiman Ayesh Hussin Oweid, 20, and took his corpse away.

Abu Al-Asal added that Civil Affairs Committee confirmed the young man’s death and added that the soldiers also injured three Palestinians, including two with live fire, and abducted one of them, Ali Othman Habash,

The Israeli army said it invaded the refugee camp to attest “wanted Palestinians,” adding that the soldiers saw two Palestinians trying to escape and shot them.

In related news, many army vehicles invaded Askar Media sources said the invasion led to an exchange of fire between the soldiers and Palestinian fighters.

On Monday dawn, the soldiers invaded many parts of the occupied West Bank, stormed and ransacked dozens of homes, and abducted at least sixteen Palestinians.

NOTE: The entire West Bank has been under Israeli occupation since 1967; all its official entrances and exits are controlled by Israeli soldiers, making its Palestinian inhabitants virtual prisoners. Many are families that were ethnically cleansed from Israel during Israel’s founding war (see this and this and this) and its 1967 war. Israeli forces often invade them; one example is here.

Israel was established in 1947 through a war of ethnic cleansing of the indigenous population, both Muslims and Christians, and it continues to steal other people’s land for illegal colonies known as ‘settlements.’ While Palestinians most often use nonviolent resistance, a small number use armed resistance against the invaders.

Thanks to the pro-Israel lobby in the US, Congress disburses over $20 million per day of Americans’ tax money directly to and/or on behalf of Israel.
