Agencies – Ramallah:
The Israeli army announced the withdrawal of all security forces from the camp and city of Jenin, in the northern West Bank, 48 hours after the start of its operations there.
Avichai Adraei, the IDF’s spokesperson for Arab media, said on his Twitter account that during the operation “hundreds of suspects were interrogated and dozens were arrested.”
He added, “The forces also found, confiscated and detonated thousands of weapons, including explosive devices, weapons parts, explosives laboratories and ammunition.”
The Israeli army raided the Gaza Strip early yesterday morning (Wednesday) after firing 5 shells from the Strip towards the Sderot area in southern Israel overnight Tuesday-Wednesday.
The Palestinian Ma’an news agency said: “The occupation planes targeted, with four missiles, a site belonging to the (resistance) in the town of Beit Lahiya, in the northern Gaza Strip.”
And she added, “The planes also bombed the Al-Baidar site, southwest of Gaza City, with a number of improvised missiles.”
The raids caused material damage to the targeted sites, without announcing any human losses, according to the agency.
This came only hours after the Israeli army withdrew its forces from the city of Jenin, in the northern West Bank, after a massive military operation that lasted for two days.
For its part, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates urged the international community to “force Israel to end the occupation,” after the “destruction” that befell the camp and city of Jenin as a result of the Israeli operations there.
The ministry issued a statement saying that “the massive destruction and vandalism committed by the Israeli war machine, which was documented by the media in audio and video in Jenin and its camp, reflect, for those who want to understand from international officials, the reality of the abhorrent and racist Israeli occupation.”
