RAMALLAH, Palestinian Territories — Israeli forces killed two Palestinians during an arrest raid in the Northern West Bank, Israeli forces and Palestinian health authorities said Tuesday. اضافة اعلان

Israeli forces said officers and undercover police entered the Jenin refugee camp to arrest a suspect “wanted for terrorist activity.”

“After the arrest of the suspect, as the forces left the house, heavy fire was opened from several directions, and undercover forces operating at the scene responded with live fire,” police said.

The Palestinian health ministry said two men were killed in the confrontation. Official news agency Wafa identified them as Abdullah Al-Hosari, 22, and Shadi Khaled Najm, 18.

Troops arrested Imad Jamal Abu Al-Heija, a freed prisoner, Wafa reported.

The news agency said the killing of the two Palestinians sparked a “massive and angry march” in Jenin.

The arrest raid is one of several recent high-profile Israeli incursions into West Bank cities.

Last month, Israeli troops killed three Palestinian suspects during a daylight raid in the Northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Israel has controlled the West Bank since the 1967 Arab Israeli War. It has since built a string of settlements across the territory which are illegal under international law.
