The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the deceased as 32-year-old Mustafa Kastuni, who sustained fatal injuries from gunshots to the head, chest, and abdomen, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported. The ministry further reported that a 34-year-old health worker, serving in supportive medical roles, was injured after being hit by bullets in the abdomen and chest.

Eyewitnesses detailed a significant presence of Israeli occupation forces in Jenin earlier in the day. They reported that the forces detonated Kastuni's residence while he was inside and subsequently detained two young men, Hani Kastuni and Hassan Hasis.

In response, local national and Islamic groups in Jenin announced a day of mourning and encouraged residents to participate in Kastuni's funeral procession.

Concurrently, Israeli occupation forces launched a widespread operation involving raids, searches, and detentions across the West Bank. These actions, resulting in confrontations in certain regions, led to the arrest of 15 Palestinians.
