Jenin /PNN /
Four Palestinians, including a child, were shot dead today by Israeli occupation forces during a surprise raid by undercover Israeli forces into the city of Jenin, north of the occupied West Bank, according to the Ministry of Health.
MoH said in a statement that four Palestinians were killed by undercover Israeli occupation soldiers who broke into downtown Jenin, while another 20 Palestinians were injured by gunfire, including four in critical condition.
The four Palestinians killed by the attacking Israeli forces were identified as Omar Awadin, 16, Nedal Khazem, 28, and Saleh Shreim, 29. The fourth was not yet identified.
Local sources said an undercover Israeli force surreptitiously sneaked into the city center of Jenin on board two civilian vehicles during the busy hours of the day, before they assassinated the four Palestinians at point blank range.
Large-scale Israeli army force raided the city in the aftermath of the deadly Israeli shooting, provoking violent confrontations with residents.
The latest Israeli crime brings up the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli occupation forces since the beginning of the year to 88, including 16 children and an elderly woman.
