Saturday 4-May-2024


The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) withdrew from the town of Deir Al-Ghusun, north of Tulkarem, after 15 hours of aggression and siege.

Eyewitnesses reported that the IOF withdrew from the town after bombing a house with missiles, knocking it down and bulldozing it using military vehicles.

The people of Deir Al-Ghusun carried out search operations on the site in an attempt to recover bodies of martyrs under the rubble of the targeted house, the witnesses added.

The IOF arrested the former prisoner, Salama Badran, who is the owner of the targeted house and the brother of the martyrs Fawaz and Saif Badran.

Local sources confirmed that the IOF military attack on the house resulted in the assassination of three martyrs. Their bodies were seized and transferred to an unknown destination.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society announced that its medical teams recovered the body of an unidentified martyr from under the rubble of the house in Deir Al-Ghusoun in Tulkarem and brought it to hospital.

Earlier this morning, the IOF recovered the body of an unidentified martyr from the vicinity of the same targeted house.

Fierce armed clashes broke out last night on the site as a large IOF unit stormed the town and called for military reinforcements before they had encircled the house in the eastern region of the town and bombed it with Energa projectiles.
