Two young Palestinian men were killed and several others were injured on Tuesday morning by Israeli army gunfire in the occupied West Bank.


A young Palestinian man was shot and killed on Monday morning during confrontations with Israeli occupation forces in the town of Beitunia, West of Ramallah, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that a Palestinian youth arrived dead at the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah after being shot in the chest by Israeli occupation forces.

The youth, identified as 26-year-old Yassin Abdallah al-Asmar, from Beitunia, was killed when Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinians waiting for a group of children released by Israel.

Kafr Ain

A 17-year-old Palestinian child died on Tuesday after being shot by the Israeli occupation in the village of Kafr Ain, northwest of Ramallah.

WAFA reported that Malik Majed Abdel Fattah Daghra died after being hit by live bullets in the shoulder, abdomen, and foot, during an Israeli military raid in the village.

Moreover, WAFA cited local sources as saying that the Israeli occupation forces detained a Birzeit University student from his home.

Deir Ammar Camp

Israeli occupation forces Tuesday morning blew up a house in the Deir Ammar camp, west of Ramallah.

The Israeli forces stormed the camp, surrounded the house of the slain Palestinian Daoud Abdel Razzaq Daras, 41, and began excavation and destruction work around the house, then blew it up.

The house was located on the ground floor of a three-story building.

Confrontations reportedly broke out after the occupation forces stormed the village of Deir Ammar and its camp. Israeli occupation soldiers fired live bullets at Palestinian youths, wounding two young men in the foot.

According to WAFA, Israeli occupation soldiers raided a number of buildings surrounding Daras’ house and forced their residents to evacuate them as the soldiers climbed onto their roofs.

Daras was shot and killed on August 31 at the Ni’lin military checkpoint. Israeli forces claimed that he had allegedly carried out a car-ramming attack near the illegal Israeli settlement of Mod’een.
