Israeli army again attacked Jenin and its refugee camp

Ramallah, May 26 (Prensa Latina) The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) today attacked the city and refugee camp of Jenin, north of the West Bank, days after a similar 40-hour operation that killed 12 Palestinians.

The official Wafa news agency reported that the soldiers entered both locations early this morning with the support of armored vehicles, including bulldozers.

It pointed out that after their entry, clashes broke out between the soldiers and Palestinian militiamen.

The news media denounced that Israeli bulldozers destroyed infrastructure in the city and a bakery in the refugee camp.

Last week, the IDF raided the town and the surrounding camp for nearly two days in an offensive that killed 12 persons, including four minors, a teacher, and surgeon Asid Jabareen.

Jenin and the neighboring city of Nablus are considered strongholds of the Palestinian militias, and therefore systematic targets of military attacks.

Arab television stations reported that many homes were demolished during the raid a few days ago.
