On Monday night, Israeli occupation soldiers invaded Jenin refugee camp, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, killed a teen, injured a young man, and abducted two Palestinians.

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that the occupying soldiers shot Dirar Riyad Al-Kafrini, 17, with an expanding bullet in the shoulder before the medics rushed him to Jenin governmental hospital.

The Health Ministry stated that the expanding bullet caused serious injuries, including multiorgan damage, and severe internal bleeding, instantly killing Dirar.

In the same context, the occupying soldiers also shot and moderately injured a young man with live fire in the leg before the medics rushed him to Ibn Sina Specialized Hospital in Jenin.

Media sources in Jenin said undercover Israeli occupying soldiers infiltrated the refugee camp from several directions before armored military vehicles, including a bulldozer, invaded it, leading to protests.

They added that the invading soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the Palestinians while a military helicopter hovered overhead.
