Ata Yasser Ata Mousa

September 19, 2023: Ata Yasser Ata Mousa, 29, died from serious wounds he suffered when Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured on Tuesday evening after the army killed three Palestinians and injured at least thirty, some seriously, in Jenin in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.

The Health Ministry has confirmed that the young man, Ata Yasser Ata Mousa, 29, from Marka village, south of Jenin, has succumbed to his serious wounds.

The Health Ministry added that Ata was shot on Wednesday night when the soldiers killed Mahmoud Ali Nafe’ Saadi, 23, Mahmoud Khaled Ar’arawe, 24, and Rafat Omar Khamaisa, 22, and injured 30 Palestinians, including some who suffered critical wounds in the Jenin refugee camp.

The attacks started when a large military force invaded the Jenin refugee camp, surrounded two homes, and fired missiles at them, leading to massive protests.

Eyewitnesses said more than thirty undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated the refugee camp and fired a barrage of live rounds at the Palestinians, forcing them to leave the streets before surrounding two homes and exchanging fire with Palestinian fighters.

The soldiers fired several rockets at the two homes where Palestinian resistance fighters are believed to be hiding.

They added that dozens of Palestinians protested the invasion and hurled stones at them while the soldiers fired a barrage of live fire.

The army also attacked Palestinian ambulances with live fire, while a military drone also fired a missile at an electricity transformer in the center of Jenin refugee camp, causing a power blackout in the refugee camp and some parts of Jenin city.

In the Gaza Strip, Israeli soldiers killed Yousef Salem Yousef Radwan, 25, from Bani Soheila town, east of Khan Younis, in the Gaza Strip’s southern part.

Ata was from Marka village, south of Jenin, in the occupied West Bank’s norther part. Source: IMEMC
