Two Palestinians Killed During Raid by Israel Forces near Jenin

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Two Palestinians were shot and killed by Israeli forces during a raid in the northern portion of the occupied West Bank, close to the city of Jenin.

Early on Thursday, a raid was conducted against the Jenin refugee camp, setting up a violent confrontation between the Israeli forces and Palestinians.

Na'im Jamal al-Zubaidi and Muhammad Ayman al-Sa'di have been named as the deceased by Palestinian media, which also reported that Israeli live fire had been used to target the victims. The attack also injured another Palestinian.

Only a few hours prior, the occupation forces attacked Ya'bad, a town southwest of Jenin, killing Mohammad Badarneh, 22, in the process.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said Badarneh was fatally shot in the chest during the military raid. He was rushed to Ibn Sina Hospital in a critical condition where he was pronounced dead.

The current year has proven the deadliest for Palestinians since 2005, when the United Nations began keeping a record of the deaths.

Including today's fatalities, more than 200 Palestinians have been killed as a result of the Israeli regime's deadly acts of aggression throughout the West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip since the beginning of the year. The number includes scores of teenagers.

The Israeli regime occupied the Palestinian territories during a heavily Western-backed war in 1967.

Ever since, it has been dotting the occupied territories with hundreds of settlements, which have come to house thousands of settlers, and imposing draconian restrictions on the Palestinians' freedom of movement there.

Tel Aviv withdrew from Gaza in 2005, but has been keeping the coastal strip under intermittent and indiscriminate airstrikes as well as a crippling siege.
