JENIN CITY, Palestine

Israeli army forces raided the West Bank city of Jenin early Thursday, according to witnesses.

Israeli soldiers searched several houses and shops in the camp and arrested at least one person during the raid, witnesses said.

Clashes erupted between stone-throwing Palestinian residents and Israeli forces, which used live fire, leaving at least one person injured, medical sources said.

Tensions have been running high across the West Bank since Israel launched a deadly military offensive against the Gaza Strip after an attack by the Hamas group on Oct. 7, 2023.

At least 543 Palestinians have since been killed and nearly 5,200 others injured by Israeli army fire in the occupied territory, according to the Health Ministry.

Israel stands accused of “genocide” at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which in its latest ruling has ordered Tel Aviv to immediately halt its military operation in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, where over a million Palestinians had sought refuge from the war before it was invaded on May 6.
