Two Palestinians killed in Israeli raid in occupied West Bank, Palestinians claim
Two Palestinians were killed in a raid conducted by Israelis in the West Bank, a landlocked territory near the coast of the Mediterranean in Western Asia, on Saturday, according to the Palestinian health ministry.
Recently, Israel and Gaza exchanged cross-border strikes. The recent raid came after this incident. According to Palestinians, Israelis have repeatedly conducted raids in the West Bank. However, Israelis claimed that Palestinians have repeatedly attacked Israelis.
The Israeli military did not comment on the recent incident.
On Thursday, Israeli forces said it killed three Palestinians, who were responsible for a massive attack against Israelis. The Israeli military claimed that the three men were responsible for an attack on a car near a Jewish West Bank settlement in April. Reportedly, the attack killed a British-Israeli woman and two of her daughters.
In March this year, the Palestinian Health Ministry claimed that three Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces near a village in the West Bank. Israeli minister Itamar Ben-Givr confirmed the death of three people during the Israeli raid.
Earlier this year, Israeli troops raided a refugee camp in Jenin, a Palestinian city in the northern West Bank, and killed six Palestinians. The incident also led to the death of a 14-year-old boy.
According to Palestinians, Israeli forces killed over 200 Palestinians, including fighters and civilians, in recent months.
In January this year, an Israeli raid in Jenin also killed 10 Palestinians. In February this year, an Israeli raid in Jericho, a Palestinian city in the West Bank, also killed 5 Palestinians. Another Israeli raid in Nablus, a Palestinian city in the West Bank, killed 11 people.
Earlier this year, Israelis and Palestinian ambassadors to the United Nations (UN) also clashed at the U.N. meeting in New York over clashes between Israelis and Palestinians.
