During the incursion, IOF arrested Yassin Marwan Hamdan and Mohammad Hamdan from their homes in the Aqabat Jaber camp.

The national forces in Aqabat Jaber organized a comprehensive strike in mourning for al-Akhras.

Within the same period, IOF launched raids into the West Bank, killing four and injuring 30.

The martyrs of Jenin refugee camp were Rafat Khamayseh, Mahmoud Saadi, Mahmoud Ararawi, and Atta Moussa, who were identified by eyewitnesses in the vicinity.

The IOF deployed significant military backup and surrounded a house in the area before it withdrew, amid fierce resistance attributed to Palestinian fighters who challenged the raiders with strong gunfire and explosive devices.

Lastly, Israeli occupation forces also shot dead 25-year-old Palestinian Youssef Radwan in eastern Gaza during demonstrations against Israel's siege of the Strip.

The news of six confirmed Palestinian deaths in less than 24 hours has sent shockwaves through the region and beyond, sparking outrage and condemnation of Israel's continued brutal occupation of Palestine.
