In the span of less than 24 hours, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have killed six young Palestinians during military raids in several areas in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Tuesday night, one Palestinian identified as Yousef Radwan (25) was killed and others injured after IOF soldiers opened fire at protesters gathering at the Gaza border with the Israeli Occupation.

IOF soldiers stationed at the borders opened fire and killed a young man from Bani Suhayia, east of Khan Younis, in Gaza, after he was shot in the head, and nine others were injured, one of them critical.

In Jenin, the IOF stormed the Jenin refugee camp, surrounded two houses, bombed them with several missiles, and prevented ambulances and medical teams from reaching those who were injured.

The Ministry of Health announced that Rafat Omar Khamayseh (22), Mahmoud Ali Saadi (23), and Mahmoud Khaled Ararawi (24) were killed and 30 others wounded, some of them critically, during the raid.

Earlier Wednesday morning, medical sources confirmed Yasser Atta Musa(29), from the village of Marka in Jenin, succumbed to his wounds after getting shot during an IOF raid.

In Jericho, the IOF fatally shot a young Palestinian identified as Dhargham Mohammad Yahya Al-Akhras (19) during a raid on the Aqbat Jaber refugee camp.
