Question: I can’t hear you, Stéph. Can you hear me, Stéphane?
Spokesman: Yeah, I can… Were you asking about the situation in Jenin? Okay. From what I did understand, Jenin, and I would refer you to what the Special Coordinator, Tor Wennesland, said. He said he was alarmed by the incident in which four Palestinians were killed by Israeli security forces, who reportedly came under fire during an arrest operation in Jenin.
