Palestinian teenager shot dead in Israeli operation in Jenin to arrest top Islamic Jihad official

MADRID, 2 Ago. (EUROPA PRESS) -

A Palestinian teenager was shot dead by Israeli security forces during a raid on a refugee camp in the West Bank city of Jenin late on Monday that resulted in the arrest of two people, including a senior official. of Islamic Jihad.

"A martyr, shot by the Israeli occupation forces, has arrived at the Jenin Public Hospital," the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a brief message on its Facebook social network account. Subsequently, it has confirmed that the deceased is Dirar al Kafraniyi, 17 years old.

The clashes broke out as part of an operation by the security forces to arrest Basam Saadi, a senior Islamic Jihad official who has been arrested along with his son-in-law Ashraf al Jada, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

The Israeli Army has confirmed an "anti-terrorist activity in Jenin to arrest two suspected terrorists." "During the activity, Palestinians fired and threw rocks at the forces. We will continue to operate against the threat of terrorism," he added on his Twitter account, without commenting on Al Kafraniyi's death.

Likewise, he stressed that he had "identified terrorist activities" by Islamic Jihad after the operation and announced that "due to a direct threat of possible attack against Israeli civilians, it has been decided to block civilian areas and routes near the fence with the Gaza Strip" during the morning of this Tuesday.

Islamic Jihad, based in Gaza and considered a terrorist group by Israel, has declared a state of "alert" after Saadi's arrest. According to information collected by the newspaper 'The Times of Israel', the Israeli Armed Forces have also closed the Erez border crossing, preventing the population of Gaza from leaving the enclave.

Saadi, 61, has been jailed and released a total of seven times by Israeli security forces. The Shin Bet had pointed out in recent months that the man "is working hard to restore Islamic Jihad activities" and that "he is behind the creation of a significant military force" by the group in the West Bank, especially in Jenin.
