Massive Blaze Burning at Zionist Regime Military Facility near Al-Quds


It comes amid rising tensions in the occupied territories.

According to the Palestinian media sources, the blaze started at the base close to the town of al-Ram, which lies northeast of al-Quds, is still burning.

There were no immediate reports about possible casualties and the extent of the damage caused.

This comes as tensions have been increasing in recent weeks in the wake of Israeli forces’ intensified raids, including one in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City of al-Quds.

On June 29, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian fighter in the northern occupied West Bank city of Jenin, after armed clashes broke out between the Israeli army and Palestinians following a dawn army raid.

Muhammad Maher Marei died after being shot in the chest. The bullet had pierced Marei’s heart, according to the head of the Khalil Suleiman Governmental Hospital in Jenin, Wissam Baker.

“This is most likely a bullet from a sniper that aimed to kill,” Baker said.

“This is what we’ve been getting used to in the recent raids on Jenin governorate – no raid takes place without lethal injuries. Even those that are wounded come with critical injuries,” he added.

The Palestinian resistance group Islamic Jihad said that Marei had been one of their fighters, and died “confronting” an Israeli raid.
