Updated: Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, Wednesday, the Aqabat Jaber refugee camp in Jericho, in the northeastern West Bank, exchanged fire with Palestinian fighters in a surrounded home, killed one, and abducted at least six Palestinians.

The soldiers initially took the Palestinian, who was seriously injured, to an Israeli hospital and later informed the Palestinian General Authority for Civil Affairs that the young man, Mahmoud Jamal Hasan Hamdan, 22, has succumbed to his wounds.

The Israeli army said it invaded the refugee camp to abduct Palestinians who are believed to be behind the Monday shooting attack that led to the death of Elan Ganeles and added that one of them sustained serious wounds while trying to retreat from the area.

Media sources said the soldiers surrounded the home of Maher Shalloon, where Palestinian fighters were hiding, and exchanged fire with them before firing a rocket at it.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said the soldiers abducted Abdul-Nasser Mousa Shalloon, 55, Maher Shalloon, 44, Amer Shalloon, 39, Mohammad Shalloon, 47, and his son Saleh, 24, in addition to the seriously injured Palestinian, Mahmoud Jamal Hamdan. All of them are former political prisoners.

The army claimed the abducted Palestinians exchanged fire with the soldiers before they were taken prisoners and their weapons confiscated.

Palestinian medics tried to reach the seriously wounded man to provide essential aid, but the soldiers blocked them before taking him away.

The army initiated the attack by deploying undercover soldiers who surrounded and isolated the home before many army vehicles invaded the refugee camp.

The soldiers also opened fire at a Palestinian car, shattering its windows, before confiscating it, in addition to shooting a young man with a rubber-coated steel bullet to the head during ensuing protests.

It is worth mentioning that Jericho remained under strict siege for the third day while the army installed more roadblocks and placed sand hills on several streets.

Earlier on Monday, two Israeli Colonizers were killed in a shooting in Huwwara near Nablus.

On Sunday, a Palestinian civilian was killed by Israeli soldiers while in his home in Za’tara village. Sameh Aqtash, who was murdered by Israeli forces Sunday, was in Turkey two weeks before, volunteering with a rescue team to save lives after the earthquake.

On February 23, 2023, Israeli soldiers killed Mohammad Nabil Fawzi Abu Sabah, 29, In Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

The day before Mohammad’s death, Israeli soldiers killed eleven Palestinians, injured more than 102, six seriously, and caused more than 250 Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation and other minor wounds.

Palestinians Suspected of Killing Israeli-American Captured by IDF

Israeli forces on Wednesday caught two suspects in the killing of 27-year-old Israeli-American Elan Ganeles earlier this week. The two were captured at the Aqabat Jabr refugee camp in the West Bank.

Also Wednesday, the Palestinian Red Crescent reported that another suspect was killed in a gunfight with the Israeli army as he was trying to flee.

Ganeles was shot and killed while visiting Israel for a wedding. His death was announced by his synagogue, Young Israel of West Hartford, Connecticut. According to a local newspaper, in an email sent to congregants, the synagogue called the attack “brutal.”

In the shooting, Palestinian gunmen opened fire on an Israeli-owned vehicle and reportedly fled east toward Jericho. On the way, they fired at another car, though it is believed that no one was wounded in the second shooting.

On Wednesday, thousands of Israelis came from around the country to Ganeles' funeral in Ra'anana, a Tel Aviv suburb. Only a small number of attendees were able to enter the cemetery; the rest stood quietly in the street outside.

Following Ganeles' killing, the Israeli military blocked the entrances to the city and conducted searches in the Aqabat Jabr refugee camp, which recently emerged as a West Bank flash point after years of relative quiet.

Wednesday's events follow a bloody 24 hours that saw two Israelis shot dead in the West Bank town of Hawara on Sunday, leading to a rampage by hundreds of settlers who arrived in the town and burned houses and cars. One Palestinian was killed in the attack and dozens were wounded.

So far this year, 62 Palestinians, about half of them affiliated with armed groups, have been killed by Israeli troops and civilians. In the same period, 14 Israelis, all but one of them civilians, have been killed in Palestinian attacks.

Last year was the deadliest for the Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since 2004, according to the Israeli rights group B’Tselem. Nearly 150 Palestinians were killed in those areas. Some 30 people on the Israeli side were killed in Palestinian attacks.
