The attacks started when a large military force, including several armored vehicles and bulldozers, invaded the refugee camp, especially the Al-Mahjar neighborhood, before the soldiers stormed and ransacked many homes and deployed sharpshooters on rooftops.

Media sources added that the military bulldozers destroyed the Nablus Road at the main entrance of the refugee camp and smashed several parked cars in the Al-Mahjar neighborhood.

Also, the Quds News Network has reported that Palestinian resistance fighters exchanged fire with the invading soldiers in the refugee camp and around it for about three hours.

On Monday night, several army vehicles invaded Ya’bad town, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and fired rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at Palestinians protesting the invasion.
