The soldiers closed the town and prevented Palestinian medics from reaching the child for more than an hour before Palestinians managed to carry the corpse of the slain teen to Ibn Sina governmental hospital in Jenin.

Mahmoud Sa’adi, the head of the Emergency Department of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Jenin, said the soldiers attacked ambulances and prevented them from reaching the area of the protests to provide the needed treatment to the injured Palestinians.

He added that the soldiers shot more than twenty Palestinians with live rounds and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation; one of the wounded Palestinians remains in a life-threatening condition.

The invasion started on Sunday evening after the soldiers surrounded and isolated Silat al-Harithiya and closed all surrounding roads.

Several army jeeps, including bulldozers, invaded the town from different directions before the soldiers invaded many buildings and occupied their rooftops to use them as firing posts.
