On Monday, Dec. 12, 2022, a Palestinian girl child was killed by Israeli sniper fire in Jenin City, north of the occupied West Bank.
15-year-old Jana Zakarnah was found dead on the roof of her home after an Israeli sniper targeted her and fatally injured her in the head.
The incident happened after Israeli soldiers from a special unit stormed the eastern neighborhood of Jenin City on Sunday night.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation forces arrested three young men, including two brothers, from Jenin City during the same raid.
Occupation forces have significantly escalated military raids in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem during the past several weeks, following a green light from the Israeli political officials.
In January 2022, the Israeli occupation has officially allowed its troops to shoot at Palestinians who had thrown rocks or firebombs, even if the suspect no longer present an immediate threat.
More than 216 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank and Gaza Strip this year, making 2022 the deadliest year since 2006.
