Israeli forces incurse into Palestine's Jenin city en masse
    Injuries reported

    WORLD  29 November 2023 - 10:50

    Two Palestinians, including a child, were injured by Israeli forces’ live bullets during a large-scale Israeli military incursion into the city of Jenin and its refugee camp, in the northern occupied West Bank.

    Two people, including a child, were injured by live fire in the hand and foot during confrontations that broke out following the Israeli military incursion into the city, Caliber.Az reports, citing WAFA.

    Forces also fired stun grenades and tear gas canisters toward residents and their homes across several neighbourhoods in the city, causing several people to suffocate, which necessitated their transfer to hospital.

    Sources said that forces obstructed the work of ambulances during its military incursion into the city of Jenin and its camp and used them as shields.

    A large military force, accompanied by a bulldozer, stormed the city from various directions, broke into several homes, deployed their snipers on the rooftops of high buildings, and imposed a curfew on its camp from all directions.

    Forces reportedly positioned its troops in front of the Jenin Governmental Hospital and its vicinity, on the outskirts of the camp, and across several neighbourhoods in search of wanted Palestinians, as drones flew low over the area.

    Israeli bulldozers also destroyed the infrastructure and resident properties and vehicles.

    Director of the Jenin Governmental Hospital, Wisam Baker, said forces searched medical personnel and staff and deployed their soldiers in the hospital yards and in front of the emergency room.

    Chief Executive Officer at Ibn Sina Specialized Hospital, Samer Atiyeh, also said Israeli forces cordoned off the hospital from all directions.

    In a related development, the director of Al Jaleel Charitable Society for Care and Community Rehabilitation in Jenin, Jamal Abu al-Izz said large military forces stormed the headquarters of the society and destroyed its contents, adding that this is the second such attack by the Israeli army against it.

    Meanwhile, a total of 160 Palestinian bodies have been retrieved from under the rubble, streets and roads in the past 24 hours in the Gaza Strip, government Media Office said on November 27.

    It said civil defence teams use manual and primitive methods to extract the bodies.

    "We are facing a real humanitarian disaster that has unfolded with the start of the humanitarian pause. The occupation army has demolished 300,000 housing units, including 50,000 units completely demolished and another 250,000 partially demolished," it said.

    The Office noted that "displaced people from northern Gaza are still unable to return to their homes because the occupation army preventing them and targeting them with live ammunition."

    The office called for the entry of equipment and machinery to help civil defence teams retrieve hundreds of corpses from under the rubble.

    "This also will help with lifting the debris of hundreds of thousands of homes, schools, and hospitals destroyed by the occupation army," it added.

    Qatar announced an agreement late on November 28 to extend an initial four-day humanitarian pause for an additional two days, under which more prisoner exchanges will be carried out.

    Israel launched a massive military campaign in the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on October 7.

    It has since killed over 15,000 people, including 6,150 children and 4,000 women, according to health authorities in the enclave.

    The official Israeli death toll stands at 1,200.

    Since the start of the temporary humanitarian truce on November 24, rescue and ambulance crews, as well as citizens, have been trying to recover as many bodies as possible with whatever capabilities they have.

    The last five days revealed the horror of the humanitarian catastrophe that befell the Gaza Strip, as 300,000 housing units were damaged as a result of Israeli air, land and sea bombing, including 50,000 housing units that were completely destroyed.

    Despite the truce, the occupation prevented citizens displaced in the south of the Gaza Strip from returning to their cities and towns in the North, as the occupation forces stationed on Salah al-Din Street fired bullets at citizens who tried to reach the north to inspect their homes and search for their missing family members, which led to the killing of three people, and injury of others.

    Meanwhile, the Israeli Prime Minister's Office informed that Israel had received a list of hostages held in the Gaza Strip who will be released by the Palestinian radical movement Hamas on November 29.

    The families of those to be released have already been notified.

    In addition, Israeli authorities have stated that they are ready to extend the temporary truce in the Gaza Strip for another two to three days.

    During these days, the Israeli authorities expect to secure the release of the vast majority of hostages held by the Palestinian Hamas movement.

    "We expect that after tomorrow, hostages will be released for another two or three days and there will be a humanitarian pause, after which we will either continue operations in Gaza or perhaps further agreements will be reached," a senior Israeli government official said.

    The Israeli authorities offered Hamas to expand the process of hostage return and include men in the lists for the release of captives (now the movement releases only children and women), but the parties have not yet been able to reach an agreement on this issue.

    Moreover, it has been reported that the US started using C-17 Globemaster military transport aircraft to deliver humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip. Previously, only commercial airlines were used.

    The US has used C-17 Globemaster military transport aircraft to deliver additional humanitarian aid to residents of the Gaza Strip, collected with UN assistance, C-Span reports.

    "Today, the United States airlifted 24.5 tonnes of UN humanitarian aid to provide Gazans with life-saving medical supplies, warm clothing, food and nutrition," a US defence official said.

    According to Ryder, additional flights will be carried out in the coming days. Previously, the assistance was provided by commercial airlines.
