According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, two Palestinians were killed on Friday during an Israeli operation in the sensitive West Bank city of Jenin.
The Israeli military announced a continuous operation in the city’s refugee camp, and the ministry reported that “two martyrs arrived at the Jenin government hospital.”
When approached by AFP of the killings, the army did not respond right away.
Conflicts between Israeli forces and Palestinians in the Jenin camp reportedly involved live fire, according to the official Palestinian news agency Wafa.
Israeli incursions across the West Bank nearly every day in recent months have resulted in the deaths of dozens of Palestinians.
According to a health ministry toll, two Palestinian youths were shot dead on Saturday during a raid in Jenin, while a 12-year-old kid passed away on Monday from injuries received last month.
After deadly attacks on Israelis earlier this year, military operations in Jenin and other West Bank locations were expanded.
The assailants who killed two soldiers in separate events during the past week are being sought by Israeli police.
Tuesday saw the death of one soldier close to Nablus, south of Jenin, and Saturday saw the death of another soldier at a checkpoint in east Jerusalem, which Israel has annexed.
A significant operation inside the city’s Shuafat refugee camp was launched in response to the hunt for the Jerusalem gunman, which has seriously disrupted daily life.
In support of the citizens of Shuafat, Palestinians participated in a day-long general strike earlier this week in the city.
Additionally, there have been skirmishes in east Jerusalem between Israeli troops, locals, and Palestinians.
