JENIN, West Bank (AA): A Palestinian teen was killed Saturday following a raid by Israeli forces in the northern city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank. Eight Palestinians were injured, four were taken away by Israeli soldiers and they demolished a room and a barn, during a massive invasion into Burqin town, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

The teen suffered a severe head wound during the raid and was transferred to Jenin’s state hospital, the Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement.

According to local sources, the teen was identified as 19-year-old Ahmad Samir Abu ‘Obeid.

The Ministry added that the soldiers also shot two young Palestinian men with live rounds in their legs, and six others with rubber-coated steel bullets, in addition to causing dozens to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation, after the army attacked locals, who protested the invasion.

The WAFA Palestinian News Agency reported that the invasion was carried out by twenty-two armored military vehicles, and two bulldozers, and added that the soldiers invaded and ransacked many homes, and used K9 units in searching the properties, causing anxiety attacks among many Palestinians, especially children.

Earlier in the day, Israeli forces surrounded several homes in al-Kufayr and Barqin villages in southern Jenin in search of Ahmed Jarrar, according to local residents. Jarrar is accused by Israeli authorities of killing a Jewish settler in a drive-by shooting last month near Nablus.

There was no comment from the Israeli military on the raid.

Last week, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man and demolished four homes during a raid in Jenin in search of Jarrar.
