Israeli Forces Kill Two Palestinians in Central West Bank

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Israeli forces killed two Palestinians and critically injured a third early on Monday north of Ramallah, which is located in the center of the West Bank, according to Palestinian security sources and eyewitnesses.

Israeli army forces stormed the Jalazone refugee camp outside of the city and fired at a passing Palestinian vehicle, killing two of them and injuring a third, Xinhua reported, citing security sources.

The two were identified as Basel Basbous and Khalid Anbar, who both lived in refugee camps. Salamah Ra'fat, the injured person, was a native of the Beir Zeit town.

According to Palestinian eyewitnesses, the soldiers detained the third Palestinian while removing the bodies of the two others.

Israeli soldiers shot two Palestinians dead near Ramallah early on Monday morning, claiming they had attempted to run over soldiers during an arrest raid in the area, according to a press release from a Zionist regime army spokesman.

The spokesman said that as soldiers were working in the Jalazone refugee camp to apprehend "a terror suspect," a vehicle started to speed up toward them.

A spokesman of the Hamas Islamic resistance movement in Gaza said in a press statement that killing two Palestinians near Ramallah "comes within the framework of the occupation's extended aggression against our people in the West Bank."

"The aggression of the occupation and its crimes will not give it security on our land and will only bring it more resistance and insistence on confronting it with all the means that our people possess," said spokesman Abdulatif al-Qanou'a.

The tension between Israel and the Palestinians has been mounting over the past few months after the Israeli army intensified its military actions and operations against Palestinians in the West Bank.
