Israel’s occupation forces killed two young men late on Tuesday March 19th in the city of Nablus on the occupied West Bank. The incident took place during Israeli occupation invasion after 22:00 Palestine time.
21-year-old Raed Hashim Mohammed Hamdan and 20-year-old Zaid Imad Mohammed Nouri, both from Nablus, were shot dead by Israeli occupation forces when they were driving at Amman Street in eastern Nablus.
Israeli occupation forces stopped ambulances from reaching the victims by firing in the air and then used a bulldozer to crush their their vehicle on the street. Some sources imply the victims’ bodies would have still been inside, but this is unconfirmed.
Israeli occupation claims that that the two youths would have supposedly ‘shot at’ occupation soldier before being shot and killed. There is no independent verification nor evidence for this allegation at this point, and crushing the car hardly benefits proving the claim.
The occupation troops were escorting illegal Israeli settlers to the so-called ‘Joseph’s Tomb’, which is one of sites mistakenly attributed as ‘tombs’ of Biblical figures in the occupied territories.
