On Monday dawn, Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinians and moderately wounded one near the Al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank.
Media sources said several armored military vehicles invaded the area of the Palestinian Education Ministry, near the refugee camp, before fatally shooting two young men and moderately wounding another.
They added that the Palestinians were in a car, approximately at 3:30 at dawn, heading to work when the soldiers fired many live rounds at their car, killing two and moderately wounding a third before taking them and the car to an unknown destination.
The slain Palestinians have been identified as Bassel Qassem Basbous, 19, and Khaled Fadi Anbar, 21, from the Al-Jalazoun refugee camp.
The wounded Palestinian, whom the soldiers also abducted, has been identified as Ra’fat Salama Habash, 19, from the nearby town of Birzeit.
Eyewitnesses said the two slain Palestinians were still bleeding when the soldiers detained them and refused to allow Palestinian medics to reach them.
The Israeli army claimed it invaded the area “to arrest wanted Palestinians when a car came at them at high speed before the soldiers opened fire at it, killing two and wounding one.”
The army alleged that Palestinians tried to carry out a ramming attack against the soldiers; however, eyewitnesses denied the allegations and said the Palestinians driving the car were surprised by the soldiers invading the area before the army fired several live rounds at them.
The army took the corpses of the two slain Palestinians, and the wounded, to an unknown destination.
It is worth mentioning that the army abducted, at dawn Monday, at least sixteen Palestinians during invasions and searches of dozens of homes and buildings across the occupied West Bank.
