Updated: On Thursday dawn, Israeli military vehicles invaded Kafr Dan village, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, leading to protests, before the soldiers shot and killed a teenage boy and three Palestinians, one seriously.

The Khalil Suleiman governmental hospital in Jenin said the soldiers killed Odai Trad Hisham Salah, 17, after shooting him with an expanding bullet in the head.

The soldiers also shot three Palestinian, including Ahmad Rashad, who suffered life-threatening wounds after the soldiers shot him in the back, and another who was moderately injured.

Furthermore, the soldiers attacked Palestinian journalists and threatened to shoot Palestine TV crew trying to enter the town to report on the ongoing invasion.

The soldiers also stormed many homes in the town and deployed their sharpshooter on their rooftops.

Dozens of Palestinians protested the invasion in several parts of the town, and hurled stones at the soldiers who fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the Palestinians and surrounding homes.

Palestine TV has reported that the Israeli attack and the intensity of the gas bombs and concussion grenades caused a fire in one home.

The town’s invasion lasted for at least four hours; the soldiers also closed and isolated the entire town and turned it into a closed military zone.

The invasion of Kafr Dan was carried out by a large military force before the soldiers stormed and ransacked the homes of Ahmad Ayman Ibrahim ‘Aabed, 23, and Abdul-Rahman Hani Sobhi ‘Aabed, 22, who were killed, Wednesday after exchanging fire with Israeli soldiers near Jenin, killing a commander of the Nahal Reconnaissance Battalion Maj. Bar Pelach, 30.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers interrogated the families for several hours while ransacking their homes and abducted Amer Taha ‘Aabed, the cousin of Ahmad.

Israeli Combat Engineering Corps took measurements of the homes, a move that comes before the army detonates the properties in an act of illegal collective punishments.

The soldiers also invaded Kafr Ra’ey town, searched homes, and abducted Aysar Al-Atrash, a former political prisoner whom Israel imprisoned for eighteen years.

Palestinian armed resistance groups in Jenin said the struggle for liberation and independence will continue despite the serious Israeli escalation and crimes against the Palestinian people, their homes and lands, and their holy sites.

Also at dawn, Israeli soldiers abducted four Palestinians from their homes in Hebron and Jenin after the soldiers stormed and ransacked many homes and buildings.

Palestinian media reported on Thursday morning that a 17-year-old was killed by the Israeli army in the West Bank.

According to the Palestinians, the incident happened in Kafr Dan, a small village northwest of the city of Jenin - the same village that was home to the two militants who shot and killed Israeli officer Bar Falah late Tuesday night before themselves being shot to death.

The Palestinian Health Ministry say the teen, Hadi Salah, was shot in the head and died shortly after. In addition, a Palestinian report from a Jenin hospital says that two more people were shot during the overnight clash.

Initially, the Israeli army had neither confirmed nor denied the report, though it did say that "security forces are arresting wanted individuals across the West Bank" in light of the killing of Major Bar Falah, arresting eight Palestinians on suspicion of involvement.

The army, however, acknowledged that it entered Kafr Dan in order to map out the house of the Palestinian assailant slated for demolition, and that "hits were detected" in their response to coming under fire.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, blamed the "occupation government" and called to "stop the dangerous deterioration that will destabilize the region." Abu Rudeineh also called on the U.S. to "pressure Israel to stop its aggression."

Following the killing of Major Bar Falah, deputy commander of the Nahal Brigade's Special Reconnaissance Unit, Israel's Defense Ministry announced that it will completely shut the north West Bank checkpoints of Jalameh and Salem until further notice and bar residents of Kafr Dan from entering Israel, even if they have a work permit.
