Israeli Army Kills Nine Palestinians Including 60-Year-Old Woman

Nine Palestinians were killed, including a 60-year-old woman, and 20 others wounded during an Israeli military raid in West Bank's Jenin on Thursday, according to the Palestinian health ministry.

The Palestinian Health Ministry also accused Israeli forces of deliberately firing tear gas inside a hospital's pediatric ward, leaving children choking.

Palestinian Health Minister Mai al-Kaila said; "The Israeli forces stormed Jenin Government Hospital and intentionally fired tear gas canisters at the pediatric department in the hospital."

The health minister described the situation in the crowded refugee camp as "critical" and said Israeli forces were for some time preventing ambulances from reaching the wounded.

It was the bloodiest day in the West Bank in years, as since its records began in 2005, the United Nations has never recorded such a high death toll in a single operation in the West Bank.

Thursday's violence brings the number of Palestinians killed this year to 29.

"Nearly 150 Palestinians were also killed last year, making 2022 the deadliest since 2004, according to the Israeli rights group B'Tselem.
