CaptionMay 3-5. The invasion of Jenin refugee camp by the Israeli defense force in April was on a scale surpassing most other operations the Israelis had carried out since the rekindling of the intifada in September 2000. Many homes were bulldozed, or scarred by shrapnel. Others were scorched by incendiary bombs that left household goods melted and charred. Over 140 houses were demolished and more than a quarter of the 14,000 Palestinians estimated to be living in the camp were left homeless.
