JENIN, Palestine

A Palestinian girl on Friday was shot by the Israeli army in her home in Jenin city, northern West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said that Dalia Assamoudi, 24, is in critical condition after undergoing a surgery.

On Friday morning, an Israeli force broke into Jenin and fired live bullets against Palestinian protesters, with clashes erupting.

The Israeli army has yet to comment on the incident.

The Israeli army usually storms Palestinian towns to arrest Palestinians “wanted” by Israeli security services, and clashes with them.

International law views the West Bank and East Jerusalem as “occupied territories” and considers all Jewish settlement-building activities on the land to be illegal.
