The Israeli army attacked the Jenin camp, killing 9 Palestinians and injuring many others.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, 9 Palestinians, including an elderly woman, were martyred by Israeli forces in the violent clashes in the Jenin camp.
According to Palestinian officials, Israeli forces stormed the city of Jenin and the camp and climbed onto the roofs of houses in the camp, sparking clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian youths, injuring several people.
Israeli soldiers opened fire with bullets and gas bombs, cutting off electricity to the camp and preventing ambulances and journalists from entering Jenin.
An Israeli bulldozer destroyed vehicles and shops near the Jenin government hospital in the northern West Bank.
Jenin Hospital is overflowing with patients, mostly children, who have arrived at the hospital in critical condition after suffocating from gas shelling by Israeli forces.
