Locals told Ma’an that violent clashes broke out after Israeli forces raided the home of Youssef Raed Mahmoud Anqawi, 20, who was shot and killed after a vehicle he was riding in, slipped on the wet road, hitting the soldiers’ military vehicle.
Another Palestinian, Amir Mahmoud Jumaa Darraj, 20, was also shot and killed by Israeli forces following the accident, while a third youth was injured and identified as Haitham Bassem Jumaa Alqam, 20.
