Attack on Jenin
Between July 3 and July 4, Israeli occupation forces carried out an extensive and brutal attack on Jenin refugee camp with multiple drone strikes and over 1,000 ground troops. 13 Palestinians, including four children, were killed and over 140 injured. The only health clinic inside the camp was severely damaged and remains closed. The water and sewerage network in the camp, as well as roads, were damaged and in some cases destroyed.
MECA supporters in the U.S. and around the world, made generous contributions for emergency aid to Jenin that enabled the local Palestinian Medical Relief Society to:
- Provide a team of doctors, nurses and social workers to assist approximately 1,125 patients with medical treatment and counseling during and in the days and weeks after the attack
- Provide wheelchairs, crutches, or walkers to 21 injured people
- Distribute dignity kits with critical hygiene materials to women and families who were displaced
- Train and equip first aid teams in the Jenin Camp and Jenin City to be prepared to provide critical help during future attacks
