Israeli troops kill 10 Palestinians in West Bank violence
29 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the year.
JENIN REFUGEE CAMP (AP) - Israeli forces killed at least ten Palestinians, including a 60-year-old woman, and wounded several others during a raid in occupied West Bank on Thursday, Palestinian health officials said, in the deadliest day in years in the territory.
The violence occurred during what Palestinian health officials described as a fierce operation in broad daylight in the Jenin refugee camp. 29 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the year.
Palestinian Health Minister May Al-Kaila said paramedics were struggling to reach the wounded amid the firing. She also accused the military of firing tear gas at the pediatric ward of a hospital, causing children to choke. Video from the hospital showed women carrying children out of hospital rooms and into the corridor.
