Jenin in the West Bank: Guns and grief on the rise

Israel’s military has been carrying out arrest raids in the occupied West Bank – a frequent event since a wave of deadly attacks by Palestinians against Israelis earlier this year.

Dozens of Palestinians, mainly militants, have been killed during army incursions, and the UN’s human rights office has raised concerns over “excessive force” and “possible collective punishment”. Israel has rejected such accusations.

The focus has been on Jenin refugee camp, home to several militant groups and where attackers have come from.

The BBC’s Tom Bateman has spent time with people of Jenin, as fears grow of a further descent into violence.
