The Israeli occupation forces stormed Wednesday the village of Marka, south of Jenin, in the occupied West Bank.

This comes after the IOF launched Tuesday a massive campaign of arrests, targeting and attacking about 19 citizens of the West Bank, and destroying their property.

In a similar context, an Israeli settler murdered a young Palestinian man near Askaka, Salfit, in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said on Tuesday.

The young martyr, Ali Hassan Harb, was murdered by a direct knife-inflicted wound to the heart, according to the Palestinian health ministry.

Harb, 27, was critically injured by a knife attack near Askaka, and he was taken to the hospital in the aftermath, where he was pronounced dead.

The Palestinian was working on his farmland, located between Salfit and Askaka, before Israeli settlers broke into the property and one of them stabbed him.

Several Palestinians tried to help Harb after he was stabbed, but the Israeli occupation forces shot in the air and threatened them against administering any aid to the injured civilian.

The Israeli occupation had confiscated large stretches of land from Askaka, 4 km east of Salfit, to expand the 'Ariel' settlement built on the land of several neighboring Palestinian villages.
