Thursday, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) detained a number of Palestinian demonstrators during a protest in front of the Israeli Occupation Central Court against the planned expulsion of Palestinians from houses in east Jerusalem's Silwan neighbourhood.

Earlier 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.
