The Israeli army announced this morning that one of its soldiers was killed during a raid in the occupied West Bank town of Ya’bad, near Jenin.
The 21-year-old staff sergeant was reportedly hit in the head by a rock during a routine army operation.
Following the incident, a large-scale Israeli army force stormed the town and raided Palestinian homes, detaining dozens of local citizens, including children and women.
According to local sources, Israeli soldiers fired teargas canisters and rubber bullets causing several suffocation cases.
