A massive operation of murder and terror at the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank has been carried out by the Israeli army immediately after the Eid Al-Adha holiday, killing and maiming scores of Palestinians including dozens of innocent civilians.
The massive operation wreaked havoc and caused huge destruction to homes and property as well as to the camp’s infrastructures.
The latest massive operation in Jenin refugee camp began shortly before dawn on 3 July, when as many as a thousand crack soldiers and around 150 armoured vehicles stormed the unprotected civilian camp, allegedly to eliminate Palestinian resistance fighters hiding in the area. Israel claims the fighters occasionally attack the occupation army patrols and paramilitary Jewish settlers, notorious for their often murderous attacks on Palestinian civilians throughout the West Bank.
The settlers, emboldened by the establishment in Israel six months ago, of the most fascist government ever in Israel’s history, have escalated their organized army-backed terror against Palestinians.
The massive operation in Jenin refugee camp, which is continuing for the second consecutive day as this report is being compiled, has been described as the biggest since 2002.
It was preceded with bombing from the air of homes and other buildings by Apache helicopters and armed drones, causing the death of several Palestinians.
The few Palestinian resistant fighters in Jenin refugee camp, lightly and poorly armed, sought to prevent the invading forces from reaching the centre of the camp. They succeeded for a time, despite the massive operation of the occupation army. As of now, at least 10 Palestinians were martyred, and as many as 100 other Palestinians were injured, some quite seriously.
Israeli sources said one Israeli soldier was Injured. However, it is widely believed that a number of soldiers were either killed or injured as apparently wounded soldiers were seen on stretches being rushed to an awaiting helicopter which flew them to hospitals.
The Israeli army reportedly fired grenades at the main mosque at Jenin refugee camp, claiming that resistance fighters barricaded themselves inside the holy place. The army had threatened to destroy the mosque if the fighters didn’t surrender.
Massive bulldozers taking part in the latest operation caused wanton destruction to the civilian infrastructure, demolishing civilian homes, shops, and businesses.
The invading force prevented ambulances and medical teams from reaching the wounded. According to eyewitnesses, some wounded people were left bleeding to death.
Goal: Extirping any realistic hope for Palestinian statehood
The declared purpose of the latest massive operation in Jenin refugee camp is the elimination of all vestiges of active resistance to the Jewish occupation and apartheid.
However, an Israeli lawmaker affiliated with the ruling Likud party was quoted as saying that the ultimate strategic goal behind the latest massive operation in Jenin refugee camp was to “irreversibly extirpate and eradicate, once and for all, any remaining realistic hope for Palestinian statehood.”
In other words, Israel is hell-bent on imposing by force unconditional capitulation of the Palestinians.
In order to reach this ultimate goal, Israel must coerce the Palestinians to abandon, once and for all, any dreams or ambitions for freedom from the wicked tentacles of the hateful Jewish Octopus. Hence, the latest bloody massive operation in Jenin.
Palestinian surrender is highly unlikely in Jenin refugee camp.
It is implausible that the Zionist entity will achieve such a genocidal goal, since pushing the Palestinian people to the corner would cause massive tribulations throughout the Arab world, and even the wider Muslim world, given the paramount status of the Aqsa Mosque in the hearts of Muslims.
Besides, the elimination of all realistic prospects for the establishment of a sovereign and territorially-contiguous Palestinian state, a Zionist goal that has more or less been achieved, will, almost certainly, prompt Palestinians to demand equal citizenship rights in a bi-national unitary state extending from the River Jordan to the Mediterranean.
Hamas appeals to Muslims: Don’t normalize with the murderers of our children
In the meanwhile, the Palestinian Islamic group, Hamas, has appealed to all Muslims to immediately stop all forms of normalization with the enemy.
“We appeal to all Arab and Muslim states to immediately end relations with the Zionist regime,” said Ahmed Ayyoub, a spokesman for the group in the Jerusalem area.
He added: your normalization with this Zio-Nazi entity is killing our children and tormenting our people.”
Saleh Aruri, deputy-head of Hamas, said during an interview with Aljazeera on 3 July that normalization with Israel was immensely harming the Palestinian cause.
Israel, he said, is exploiting her normalized relations with a number of Arab dictatorships to encircle the Palestinians and try to liquidate the Palestinian national cause.
The United States is openly colluding with the Talmudic fascist Israeli regime to expand the so-called Abraham Accords by including some additional Arab regimes such as Saudi Arabia.
The Accords are mainly designed to isolate the Palestinian cause by neutralizing Arab and Muslim support for the Palestinian people.
So far, three Arab regimes have gone too far in their relations with the very entity that desecrates the Third most important Islamic sanctuary, namely al-Masjidul Aqsa. These states are The United Arab Emirates which has established a quasi-alliance with Israel, the little Sheikhdom of Bahrain and Morocco.
The three despotic regimes seem to have turned their backs. almost completely to the Palestinian cause and people.
