Israeli forces conducted a military raid in the city of Jenin in the northern West Bank early Tuesday, leading to three Palestinians being injured. Several military vehicles, accompanied by a bulldozer, stormed the city and the camp, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

The agency indicated that a 24-year-old man was killed, and two others are in critical condition after an assault by Israeli occupation forces in the northern part of Hebron in the West Bank.

Confrontations also erupted in the town of Sa'ir, north of Hebron, as Israeli forces fired live rounds, stun grenades, and tear gas during their offensive operation.

In different areas of the West Bank, the Israeli occupation army arrested a total of 56 civilians, as reported by WAFA.

In Jerusalem, 15 citizens were arrested, including four journalists and a 19-year-old boy.

In Hebron, 22 individuals were arrested, including at least one journalist, following raids in towns such as Bani Naim, Dura, and Al-Samu.

In Ramallah, 11 citizens were arrested, including two recently released prisoners.

In Jericho and Jenin, four individuals were arrested, including a 19-year-old boy.

In Bethlehem, four individuals were arrested, including two brothers aged 20 and 15, respectively.

This comes as Israeli forces withdrew from Tulkarm camp after an extended military raid that caused damage to camp infrastructure and electricity poles, resulting in a power outage. Five Palestinians were injured during the raid, with one in critical condition.

These incidents in the West Bank occurred on the 32nd day of Israel's brutal war on Gaza, which has witnessed the loss of over 10,000 Palestinian lives due to relentless Israeli bombardment on the strip.

The United Nations Security Council failed to pass a resolution addressing the situation, primarily due to the United States' opposition to a ceasefire. The proposed ceasefire was aimed at enabling the delivery of essential aid and preventing further civilian casualties
