Israeli airstrike in Jenin increases death toll in West Bank

TEHRAN, May 18 (MNA) – At least one person was killed and eight others were injured during Israeli regime's airstrikes on Jenin.

The Israeli regime's military has confirmed that a fighter jet and a military helicopter took part in the missile attack on the Jenin refugee camp, in the occupied West Bank.

The target has been identified by locals in the area as a combatant named Islam Khamaysa from the Jenin battalion, the military wing of Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

The house that was hit was in the center of this very densely populated camp. All those inside are thought to have been Palestinian Resistance combatants, Al Jazeera reported.

Videos show ambulances rushing to the scene and people being brought to the hospital.

Drones and jets have been used increasingly as part of Israel’s brutal attacks on the occupied West Bank, with this at least the third airstrike in the last several months, including one in October.

The Jenin area has had the highest number of Palestinians killed in the occupied West Bank since the war on Gaza began.
