TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire in the West Bank on Friday afternoon, bringing the day’s toll from clashes in the territory to 11, the health ministry said.
Footage shows the funeral of the man attended by hundreds of people carrying flags of Palestine and Hamas.
The Palestinian health ministry confirmed a man’s death and that of a second man shot dead by Israeli troops near Jenin.
There have been daily clashes in the West Bank since Monday, after Israel attacked worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem al-Quds following attempts to evict Palestinians from their homes in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said Friday’s West Bank clashes, affecting multiple locations, had left more than 100 people wounded, including from tear gas and rubber bullets.
Amid the surge in West Bank violence, the Gaza conflict raged on Friday, with Israeli forces continuing a bombing campaign in the enclave by firing at least 450 missiles into Gaza within a 40-minute period.
