The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) threatened to avenge the killing of two of its men in the Jenin refugee camp. The two, Abdallah al-Husary, 22, and Shadi Nijem, 18, were killed during clashes with IDF troops in the camp early Tuesday. Husary was identified as a member of PIJ’s al-Quds Brigades, while Nijem was described as a member of a PIJ-affiliated group called Belt of Fire.

The incident came as Palestinian factions called for a “day of rage” in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails. It also came amid a significant increase in the number of shooting attacks against IDF soldiers and installations in various parts of the West Bank.

Husary was shot dead when he opened fire at the soldiers who entered the camp, according to Palestinian sources, who said that he had previously been summoned for interrogation by the Palestinian Authority security forces in Jenin over his activities with PIJ.
