Two of them were identified as Abdelrhman Hazem, the brother of Ra’ad Hazem, and Mohammad al-Wanna; they were assassinated by Israeli special forces who surrounded a house, in which the two were inside, in the Jenin refugee camp.

Both Abdelrhman and his father are wanted by the Israeli occupation. The Israeli occupation army stated the target of the assault was Abdelrhman Hazem.

The third was identified as Ahmad Nazmi Alawneh who was shot dead in the head by an Israeli sniper while he was resisting the Israeli raid.
