Israeli forces kill 2 Palestinians in Jenin refugee camp raid

Jerusalem, Oct 8 (EFE).- Israeli forces killed two Palestinians during an operation at the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank on Saturday.

Another 11 were injured in the incident, which comes a day after Israeli forces killed two others in the occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian health ministry.

The Palestinian news agency Wafa named Saturday’s dead as 19-year-old Ahmed Mohamed Husein Daraghmeh, who died from gunshots to the head, and Mahmud Moayed al Sous, 18, who was shot in the neck.

Israeli authorities said the operation was aimed at arresting a an individual suspected of terrorist activities linked to the Islamic Jihad Movement.

A spokesperson for the Israeli military said soldiers opened fire on armed suspects.

Last week, Israeli troops carried out an operation in the same zone which claimed the lives of four Palestinians, some with links to Palestinian armed groups, and led to the most violent clashes in the West Bank so far this year.

Some 110 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces or during raids and clashes in the West Bank this year, according the Palestinian health ministry.

Israel has since March been carrying out almost daily raids in the West Bank in response to a wave of Palestinian and Arab Israeli violence that killed 18 people in Israel between March and April. EFE
