Six Palestinians, including a 15-year-old boy, have been killed by Israeli forces and 90 others were injured during a raid into Jenin refugee camp, BBC reported quoting Palestinian health officials.

Amjad Aref al-Jaas, 48, was shot in the stomach early on Tuesday and died from his injuries, according to Al Jazeera quoting the Palestinian health ministry.

Waseem, Amjad’s son, was one of the ten Palestinians killed in the Jenin refugee camp massacre on January 25 of this year. Waseem was 22 years old.

Separately, on Monday night in the Husan village near Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank, Israeli forces also shot and killed a 20-year-old Palestinian man named Zakariya al-Zaaloul, increasing the total number of Palestinian fatalities since Monday to seven.

Al-Zaaloul’s funeral was conducted on Tuesday morning, beginning at the public hospital in Beit Jala and ending at the cemetery in Husan, where he was buried, the Al Jazeera report said.
