At least two Palestinian youths were killed and a third was injured on Monday when Israeli occupation forces fired on civilians in a refugee camp in Jalazone, north of Ramallah.
Israeli occupation forces kill Palestinian youth
The Israeli military opened fire on the three young men who were in their car. Khaled Al-Dabbas and Basel Al-Basbous died at the scene, according to local media.
However, according to an Israeli army spokesman, its troops entered Jalazone to arrest what they called “wanted men”.
Shortly after and as a protest, clashes broke out between dozens of Palestinian youths and the Israeli occupation forces in the Al-Jalazun refugee camp, north of Ramallah, in the center of the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli occupation forces fired poisonous tear gas canisters, sound bombs, live bullets and rubber-coated metal bullets at the youths, while no injuries were reported.
Likewise, the Israeli Army closed the main road that connects the Al-Jalazun camp and the city of Al-Bireh (in the center of the West Bank).
This event took place in the context of growing tension in the West Bank, amid escalating attacks by the occupying army and settlers against Palestinian citizens, which left an undetermined number of dead and wounded.
The number of Palestinians killed by the Israeli army since the beginning of this year has risen to 167 in all parts of the occupied territories.
