Israeli forces Monday late night killed a Palestinian teen and injured another in the course of a detention raid in Jenin refugee camp, according to the Health Ministry.
The Ministry confirmed that 17-year-old Dirar al-Kafrayni was gunned down and another injured by Israeli military gunfire in the flashpoint northern West Bank refugee camp.
It added that al-Kafrayni was rushed to the Jenin Public Hospital in critical condition, where he has pronounced dead shortly afterward.
Elaborating on al-Kafrayni’s case, Director of the Jenin Public Hospital Wessam Bakr said that the bullets hit him in the shoulder, penetrated his chest, and exploded inside, causing his immediate death.
The other casualty, who sustained a foot injury, was taken to the Ibn Sina Hospital, where medics described his condition as moderate.
The violent confrontations erupted undercover Israeli forces, known as Musta’ribeen or Mista’arvim in Hebrew, sneaked their way into the camp from several directions followed by a military bulldozer as a helicopter hovered over the area.
The undercover unit leading tracking dogs showed up at the house of Bassam Saadi, a 62-year-old former prisoner, muscled inside, and re-arrested him along with his son-in-law Ashraf al-Jada.
They opened heavy gunfire, tear gas, and concussion grenades toward local youths and civilian houses.
No injuries were reported among the undercover unit though.
