Israeli forces have brutally attacked the city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank, killing at least seven people and wounding at least nine, two of them critically, before bulldozing homes and buildings. Video in circulation shows Palestinian children fleeing under fire from troops, snipers and tanks, while a local hospital director reported that Israeli troops were firing at people in the hospital’s courtyard.

Among the murdered were three children, as well as senior surgeon Dr Osayd Jabarin and teacher Allam Jaradat, who was shot in his car as he tried to drive to work:

The Red Crescent reported that Israeli forces stopped emergency crews from reaching wounded people. Israel claimed it only killed armed men. Other raids took place in Tubas, Hebron, Nablus and Ramallah.

International Criminal Court (ICC) chief prosecutor Karim Khan announced on Monday that he had applied for war crimes arrest warrants for Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and defence minister Yoav Gallant. The regime has been in panic mode since and has tried to enlist the US to pressure the ICC into denying the warrants – but Netanyahu and co will not stop piling up the evidence of their criminality and contempt for humanity.
