Israeli soldiers fire tear gas canisters from an armored vehicle during an ongoing military operation in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin on July 4. Jenin is a small city in the hilly, far north of the West Bank, near the border with Israel, and contains a teeming, concrete, and cinder-block refugee camp by the same name housing some 14,000 people.
