Israeli’s Airstrike Jenin as Massive Vehicle Convoy Enters City

Date:

4 Palestinians have been killed with at least one other injured as Israel launches a series of more than 10 airstrikes on Jenin, stating they are targeting “terrorist infrastructure”. Some of those killed belong to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group. Following airstrikes a large convoy of well over 100 Israeli vehicles, including bulldozers, entered Jenin.



Israel claims to have struck a headquarters for the “Jenin Battalion”.



The Palestinian side has claimed that Israeli strikes have hit a house, an apartment building, as well as a mosque. They also have claimed the primary gate to Jenin to have been destroyed.



The IDF has stated that the success of the next few hours will determine if the operation, named operation “Home and Garden”, will be longstanding or not.



They also referred to Jenin as a “terror safe haven”. Israel’s Iron Dome system has been deployed around Gaza in anticipation of retaliatory rockets fired from Gaza, as often follows Israeli action in the West Bank.



Clashes have drastically escalated in the last few weeks, particularly after Israel used both a drone and a helicopter during combat operations for the first time in over 20 years.

Several Palestinian militant groups have released statements on the situation, they may be read below:


Martyr Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades (PFLP):

The zionist aggression against Jenin is inseparable from the comprehensive and continuous aggression against our people wherever they are.

The crimes of the occupation will only increase our people’s determination and steadfastness to continue the march of resistance until this zionist enemy is defeated.

We salute the heroes of the Palestinian resistance who valiantly confront the widespread aggression of the occupation against Jenin and its camp.

We call on our people in all the neighboring villages and towns to unite with the people of Jenin to repel this terrorist aggression.


Jenin Brigade:

With Allah’s help, strength and success Saraya Al-Quds – Jenin Brigade targets the occupation vehicles in the vicinity of the camp with heavy and successive salvoes of bullets and achieves direct hits.


Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – Jenin:

01:35 AM: With Allah’s help and strength, our fighters are engaged in violent armed clashes with the zionist occupation forces in the vicinity of Jenin camp, and they are targeting them with heavy barrages of bullets.


The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement:

 

The aggression against Jenin will not achieve its goals, and we will remain [in] Jenin as a symbol of steadfastness.

Jenin will not surrender, and our fighters are determined to confront and fight no matter the sacrifices.

The zionist enemy bears full responsibility for all the consequences of this aggression.

The resistance will confront the enemy and will defend the Palestinian people, and all options are open to strike the enemy in response to its aggression in Jenin.
