At dawn on Friday, the Israeli occupation forces stormed the city of Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank, which led to clashes with Palestinian resistance, while the "Jenin Brigade" (an armed group affiliated with the Palestinian resistance) announced the downing of an Israeli drone in the camp.

The Palestinian news agency Wafa reported that a fire broke out in one of the electricity transformers after it was targeted by the Israeli occupation forces.

It added that the Israeli army prevented the Civil Defense from reaching the fire, and also damaged a shop in the vicinity of the city's Interior Roundabout.

For its part, the "Jenin Brigade" broadcast – through its Telegram account – a video clip of the drone, and said that "the battalion's engineers are working to extract information from inside."

The occupation forces arrested – at dawn on Thursday – 25 Palestinians, including 16 from the town of Beita near Nablus, at a time when the Israeli army blew up the family home of a Palestinian prisoner near Ramallah in the West Bank.

According to a United Nations report, from the beginning of this year until May 15, Israel killed 112 Palestinians in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, double the number it killed during the same period last year 2022.

The West Bank is witnessing a state of escalating tension, in light of the continued expansion of settlements, settler incursions into Al-Aqsa Mosque, and Israeli army raids on Palestinian cities, especially in Nablus and Jenin.
