A Palestinian youth and a teen have been killed, and over a dozen others wounded in an Israeli airstrike in the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank.

The young man killed on Thursday in the attack was Yasser Hanoun, who had served time in an Israeli jail, according to local sources.

The 17-year-old teen, identified as Saeed Jaradat, was wounded critically in the attack and later succumbed to his injuries.

The attack came a day after clashes between Palestinian fighters and Israeli troops erupted in Jenin.

Israeli forces have repeatedly targeted the city of Jenin and its refugee camp since the outbreak of the regime’s onslaught on Gaza on October the seventh.

Over 400 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces and settlers across the West Bank since then.

Israel occupied the West Bank in the 1967 Six-Day War, in a move never recognized by the international community. Since then, the illegal entity has perpetrated a raft of crimes, including killing, displacement, arrest and torture of Palestinians and demolition of their homes.

In its latest aggression, Israel waged a brutal war on the Gaza Strip on October 7 after Hamas carried out a historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The brutal war has killed over 29,000 people and left nearly 70,000 others injured.
