Israeli forces stormed Jenin refugee camp and engaged in clashes with native Palestinians on Thursday, killing two youths, and injuring 15 others. An Israeli soldier was also reportedly injured in the ensuing clashes.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces said they shot dead another Palestinian after he injured an Israeli in a stabbing attack near Bethlehem.

It comes amid a fresh round of violence by the Israeli regime forces in the occupied West Bank.

Israel's military stated that its forces stormed the Jenin refugee camp to arrest suspects in connection with Tuesday night’s operation in Bnei Brak, one of Tel Aviv’s suburbs, which led to the killing of five Israelis and the perpetrator Diaa Hamarshe from Yaabad town near Jenin.

During the funeral procession of two youths in Jenin, mourners vowed to avenge their killing saying the operation was meant to calm down angry settlers.

Following Jenin’s raid, Israel announced a military operation, dubbed wave Breaker, to stem what it described rising tide of terrorism by Palestinians. In one week Tel Aviv was shocked by three operations in lands occupied since 1948, leaving 11 Israelis dead.

A third Palestinian man was also shot dead after claims that he stabbed and injured an Israeli man with a screwdriver on a bus near the illegal settlement of Efrat in the Gush Etzion settlement block between Bethlehem and al-Khalil.

The Israelis are calling for a military campaign in the occupied West Bank as a painful response. On the other hand, Palestinian resistance groups have vowed to respond strongly to the Israeli regime's crimes, saying it has a hand on the trigger.
