Two Palestinians Killed in Clashes with Israeli Defence Forces in the West Bank

JERUSALEM – The Israeli Defence Forces killed two Palestinians after they allegedly launched explosives at troops protecting Jewish worshippers at Joseph’s Tomb in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, the official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported on Wednesday.

The deceased, identified as Raed Hamdan, 21, and Zaid Nouri, 20, died late Tuesday, according to several Palestinian media outlets, when Israeli forces opened fire on a car after explosives were fired from inside the vehicle.

“The IDF responded with fire toward the vehicle. At the same time an IDF engineering vehicle hit the car, as a result the two attackers inside the vehicle were killed,” the IDF said in a statement, according to Israeli media reports, which added that no casualties were reported from their side.

Wafa reported that the Israeli military did not allow medical assistance to reach the vehicle and help the two Palestinians and opened fire at one of the ambulances.

The Israeli military refused to hand in the bodies of the two killed Palestinians until early Wednesday, according to Palestinian news agency Maan.

Clashes erupted between dozens of Palestinians and Israeli soldiers following the incident, leaving 12 Palestinians injured with rubber bullets and 15 others were suffocated from tear gas bombs, according to Ahmad Jebril, Palestinian Red Crescent spokesman, as cited by Maan.

The wounded were transferred to local hospitals to receive medical treatment.

Meanwhile on Tuesday, Israeli security forces killed a 19-year-old Palestinian man, Omar abu Leila, who had allegedly killed an Israeli soldier and seriously wounded another on Sunday near the Ariel settlement located southwest of Nablus.

“Last night, our troops alongside security forces located the terrorist who committed the two terror attacks on Sunday in which SSgt. Gal Keidan and Rabbi Achiad Ettinger were killed,” Israeli military posted to its official Twitter account.

“We will continue to fight terror,” the statement added.

Joseph’s Tomb is located in Area A of the West Bank, which is completely under the control of Palestinian National Authority (PNA), although the Israeli security forces protect Jewish worshippers there.
