Early Thursday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced the death of three young men after the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF), including special forces, conducted a pre-dawn raid in Jenin in search of ‘wanted Palestinians.’
The deceased were identified as two members of the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) Military Intelligence force, Adham Yasser Eleiwi, 23, and Tayseer Ayasa, 32, and a recently freed prisoner from Zionist jails, Jamel al-'Amori.
They were killed when the IOF, dressed in civilian clothing, attempted to detain wanted Palestinians outside the headquarters of the PA Military Intelligence Unit headquarters in Jenin.
The Director of Military Intelligence in Jenin, Talib Salahat, told the Palestinian news agency, Wafa, that the two PA members, Ayasa and Eleiwi, were executed while covering the night watch shift.
Notably, a third member of the PA forces was critically injured in the shooting, and he was transferred to a hospital for treatment.
A general strike will be observed in Jenin later Thursday to mourn the martyrs killed by IOF bullets.
In addition, a massive march was launched in front of the Martyr Khalil Suleiman Governmental Hospital for Eleiwi, before his body was transferred to his hometown.
In light of her son's death, the mother of Eleiwi said, "Praise be to God, I raised my head and said to [the Israeli Occupation], we are not afraid and they will not break us."
