Iran Condemns Israel’s Recent Atrocities in West Bank
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman strongly denounced a series of Monday attacks on Palestinian people in the West Bank, which led to the death of two Palestinian teenagers.
In reaction to a fresh wave of Israel’s slaughter of Palestinian people, Afkham on Monday condemned the recent attacks and described the moves as “inhumane”.
She further strongly warned about the repercussions of the Zionist regime’s desecration of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Holy Quds (Jerusalem).
A 12-year-old Palestinian boy was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers during clashes in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem on Monday. Abed al-Rahman Shadi Obeidallah was shot near his heart by Israeli forces during clashes in the refugee camp.
Another teenager was also reportedly shot with live fire in the leg during the same clashes and taken to hospital for treatment.
Israeli forces also shot a Palestinian teenager dead on Sunday during clashes in the northern West Bank village of Bala.
Red Crescent officials said that 18-year-old Huthayfa Othman Suleiman was shot in the chest during clashes and died in the operation room.
The killings follow violent confrontations over the weekend in which over 400 Palestinians were wounded by live rounds or rubber-coated steel bullets in clashes with Israeli forces and settlers.
