Jenin residents survey damage and mourn dead after Israeli raid

Palestinians are assessing the damage inflicted by a two-day Israeli raid on Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, which killed 12 people, including four children.

AFP correspondents reported that dozens of buildings have been wrecked.

“Every time they come to Jenin, it is destroyed,” Fayza Abu Qutna, 60,  who has lived in the camp for decades, told AFP. “We live in sadness. We live in misery.”
