The Ministry of Health and Jenin hospitals said in their latest update on the Palestinian casualties of the Israeli assault that seven Palestinians were killed, three of them killed in airstrikes, while the number is expected to rise in light of the many who were critically wounded in the assault.

Four of those killed were identified as Samih Firas Abu al-Wafa, Husam Mohammad Abu Deibeh, and Aws al-Hanoun, all three were shot in the chest, and Nour Eddin Husam Marshoud, was shot in the head.

The army started after midnight a major assault on Jenin, starting with airstrikes before dozens of military vehicles and several hundred soldiers raided the city, concentrating on its refugee camp.

The army bulldozers destroyed several streets in the camp to prevent the movement of cars and ambulances, said local sources.
