Ramallah, Nov 30
At least two Palestinian children were killed by Israeli army gunfire during its raid on the West Bank city of Jenin and its refugee camp, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.
The Ministry said on Wednesday in a brief press statement sent to Xinhua news agency that two children were killed as a result of being shot by Israeli forces in the city of Jenin.
According to local sources and eyewitnesses, the army conducted a wide-scale arrest campaign in the refugee camp, and evacuated residents in the Damaj neighbourhood from their homes amid intense confrontations, Xinhua news agency reported.
The sources added that the Israeli army also bombed a house with a drone, and demolished infrastructures such as water, electricity and sewage networks with bulldozers.
Jenin has long been a centre for Palestinian resistance groups.
Israel says the camp is a hub for planning and preparing militant attacks as well as a safe haven for fighters funded by Hamas or the Islamic Jihad group.
