Israeli forces killed four young Palestinian men in the occupied West Bank on Sunday morning, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement. 

Nuba, Hebron

A Palestinian youth was killed by Israeli army gunfire on Sunday morning during a military raid in the town of Nuba, to the northwest of Hebron (Al-Khalil), the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

According to WAFA, Israeli occupation forces stormed the town of Nuba, leading to confrontations where they fired live ammunition and tear gas canisters at Palestinian residents.

Ahmed Habes Dababsa, 22, was killed while his brother was wounded and rushed to the hospital for medical treatment.

Abu Dis, Jerusalem

Three young Palestinians were killed and six others were injured, including two seriously, by Israeli occupation forces on Sunday morning in the town of Abu Dis, east of occupied Jerusalem, WAFA reported.

A large contingent of the Israeli occupation army stormed Abu Dis and laid siege to a house, sparking confrontations in the area. 

The situation escalated when the Israeli occupation forces deployed a bulldozer and began demolishing parts of the besieged house.

The Israeli occupation forces then fired a missile at the building, murdering a young Palestinian man who was trapped inside.

Video footage circulating on social media showed Israeli soldiers carrying the body of the murdered youth, who had been killed by Israeli bombardment inside the besieged home, using the same bulldozer that had previously demolished portions of the house.

The youth has been identified as 20-year-old Nabil Halabia, 20. His body has been taken away by the forces.

Later in the morning, the Ministry of Health confirmed the deaths of Musa Diaa Zarour, 22, and Muhannad Affana, 20, who succumbed to their injuries sustained during the confrontations with Israeli occupation forces in the town.
