This operation comes a day after an Israeli military raid targeted the town of Jenin and its adjacent refugee camp in the northern West Bank, killing nine Palestinians and wounding 20 others according to the Palestine Chronicle. It points out 30 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of this year.
