The Israeli military has intensified its operations in the West Bank in recent weeks, following a series of attacks in Israel, some of which were carried out by Palestinians from the West Bank, which the Jewish state occupied in 1967.

On Thursday evening, the boy, Odeh Muhammad Odeh, from the village of Medea, west of Ramallah, was murdered. The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed: “The death of a 17-year-old boy who arrived at the Palestine Medical Complex was shot in the chest by the occupation soldiers.” “Doctors tried to save his life, but he recovered from his very critical injury,” she added.

Palestinian security sources said the incident took place after “young men threw stones at the occupation soldiers at the separation wall”. But the head of the town’s village council, Ragheb Sadaka, confirmed that the boy “was injured while there were no clashes… He was about half a mile away.”

Sadaka told AFP that the Israeli military will “shoot anyone who tries to get close”.

As part of its operations, the Israeli military demolished the home of Diaa Hamarsha, the perpetrator of a shooting attack in Bnei Brak, Israel, which left five dead on March 27. His father was arrested.


During this operation, the military said that “violent clashes and riots broke out” and soldiers were attacked with petrol bombs and bullets.

The army confirmed: “The Border Guard soldiers participated in its activities along with the army, which included several sites in the West Bank, including the towns of Hawara, Al-Khader, Dura and Qalqilya.”

The official spokesman for the Palestinian presidency, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, condemned “the dangerous Israeli escalation of crimes of field executions against the Palestinian people on the orders of its Prime Minister (Naftali) Bennett.” “We are at a crossroads,” he added, warning that “the continuation of the escalation will drag the region into more tension and violence,” blaming the Israeli government for the repercussions.

He called on the US government to “take its responsibility to end this Israeli madness”. He asked: “Where is the opportunity that the US administration is asking for and the climate that must be provided before US President Joe Biden’s visit to the region, which is trying to thwart Israel through its escalation against our people and their sanctities? ?”

In late March, a wave of violence began, killing 19 people, most of them civilians, in attacks on Israelis by Palestinians, including Israeli Arabs, in Israel and the occupied West Bank, killing three of the attackers.

As a result, in response to the attacks, the Israeli Defense Forces stepped up their military operations in the West Bank, killing 39 Palestinians, including activists and civilians, including journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, while covering an Israeli military operation in the Jenin refugee camp, the stronghold of Palestinian armed factions.

An Israeli Special Forces officer has been killed in an operation in the West Bank.

Since early 2022, the Palestinian Health Ministry has registered the deaths of 63 Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
