Israeli forces kill 7 Palestinians in West Bank

Seven Palestinians, including a doctor, have been killed by Israeli forces during an operation in Jenin in the north of the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry has said.

Dr Aseed Jabareen, a 50-year-old surgeon at Jenin Government Hospital, was shot dead on his way to work, according to the ministry, reports BBC.
Palestinian media also said a teenage boy was killed while riding a bicycle.

The Israeli military said it was investigating the reports.

The UN says at least 480 Palestinians have been killed in israeli strikes in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

The West Bank-based Palestinian health ministry said seven people had been killed and nine wounded, two of them seriously, by Israeli fire during Tuesday morning’s operation in Jenin.

The only casualty it named was Dr Jabareen, whom it said Israeli forces had shot as he travelled to work at Jenin Government Hospital, where he was a surgeon.

The ministry accused Israeli forces of intentionally killing the doctor.

Official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported that a schoolboy in the 9th grade, Mahmoud Hamadna, was killed as he cycled through Jenin.

It posted a photograph on X, formerly Twitter, purportedly showing the teenager’s body lying on the ground in a side-street beside what looked like a bicycle.

Wafa also said schoolteacher Allam Jaradat was killed “while on duty” at Walid Abu Muwais Basic School and posted a photo that it said showed a pool of blood on the back seat of his car.

Video footage meanwhile showed people helping a Palestinian photojournalist, Amr Mansara, who was reportedly injured by shrapnel from a bullet while covering the operation.
