Palestine: 2 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in Jenin, W Bank
Palestine, (Imemc & Wafa news agency): Israeli forces killed two Palestinians in a raid on Jenin refugee camp, occupied West Bank on Thursday at dawn.
The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that the soldiers killed a physical education teacher and a married father of six children, Jawad Farid Hussein Bawaqna, 58, after shooting him in the head, and former political prisoner, Adham Mohammad Bassem Jabarin, 26, both from Jenin refugee camp.
According to eye witnesses Israeli soldiers also stopped Palestinian ambulances and prevented the medics from entering the refugee camp, forcing the residents to transport Jawad and Adham to the Ibn Sina Hospital in private cars, but they succumbed to their wounds.
The soldiers also attacked Palestinian protesters with live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.
Medical sources said the soldiers injured several Palestinians, including three who were shot with live fire to the abdomen, thigh, and shoulder, suffering moderate-but-stable wounds.
The Palestinian shot in the abdomen was rushed to surgery after a soldier shot him with an expanding bullet, causing multi-organ damage.
Two Israeli soldiers were reportedly injured by an explosive charge hurled at their military vehicle.
The soldiers also invaded and ransacked many homes and abducted four Palestinians, including two siblings, Hasan Ahmad Zaghal and Sharaf Ahmad Abu Sharif, in addition to Aws and his brother Hani Khaled Abu Zeina.
A special force of the Israeli army stormed the camp and other military reinforcements arrived later in the early hours of Thursday morning, eyewitnesses told Anadolu.
Clashes erupted between the Israeli army and Palestinian gunmen while they were trying to stop the incursion.
Sources in Jenin said a large Israeli force raided Jenin refugee camp to arrest activists and deployed snipers on rooftops during which heavy exchange of gunfire was reported.
Last year, Israeli soldiers killed 224 Palestinians, including 59 from the Jenin governorate.
