Palestinian youth killed during IOF night raid on Jalazone refugee camp

Since the reported disappearance and claimed kidnapping of 3 young Israeli settlers near Gush Etzion settlement on Friday, Israeli Occupation Forces have been carrying out widespread raids and attacks across the West Bank and have also bombed Gaza. With an intensive arrest campaign underway across the West Bank, it is now reported that at least 150 Palestinians have been arrested since Friday.

Hebron has been heavily attacked during these ongoing invasions and is under almost complete closure with checkpoints surrounding the city. On Sunday night, the IOF continued their raids on the southern city as well as invading Beit Jala and Bethlehem, Ramallah and its refugee camps, and both Nablus and Jenin.

During raids around the Ramallah area, Jalazone refugee camp was attacked overnight. 3 young Palestinians were shot with live bullets during the invasion and one of the youth, 20 year old Ahmad Sabarin, was killed after being shot directly in the chest.

Thousands of Palestinians from the Ramallah area gathered in Jalazone camp for Sabarin's funeral. He was killed, and buried, only one week after being released from the occupation prisons.
