The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is deeply concerned about the events this morning in Jenin, which have resulted in several deaths and injuries.
The number of civilians injured and killed due to the intensification of armed violence in parts of the West Bank has significantly increased over the past weeks,” said Arnaud Meffre, the ICRC’s head of sub-delegation in the West Bank. “We remind all armed actors of their obligations to respect and protect civilians and their property,” he added.
Medical personnel, medical units and facilities must be protected and respected in all circumstances to guarantee the affected communities’ continuing access to care.
