Palestine: Israeli soldiers kill 2 Palestinians, injure 8 in West Bank
Imemc.org: On Monday dawn, dozens of armored Israeli military vehicles, including bulldozers, invaded Kafr Dan town, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, demolished the homes of two slain Palestinians, killed two young men, and injured at least eight others, one seriously.
Samer Atiya, the head of the Ibn Sina Specialized Hospital in Jenin city, said the soldiers killed Mohammad Samer Houshiyya, 21, from Al-Yamoun town, west of Jenin, after shooting him with several live rounds in the chest.
Atiya added that the soldiers also killed a teenage boy, Fuad Mahmoud ‘Aabed, 17, from Kafr Dan, after shooting him with live fire in the chest and the thigh.
The soldiers also shot at least eight Palestinians with live fire, including one who suffered life-threatening gunshot wounds.
Hospital director Samir Atiyya said one of the eight injured was in severe condition due to gunfire opened by Israeli forces reported state news agency Wafa
The soldiers surrounded the homes of Ahmad Ayman ‘Aabed, 23, and Abdul-Rahman Hani ‘Aabed, 22, whom the soldiers killed on September 14, 2022, and ransacked the properties in preparation for demolishing them and abducted Abdul-Rahman’s brother, Maher.
The soldiers wired and detonated two apartments owned by the family of Ahmad Ayman Aabed and one owned by the family of Abdul-Rahman Sobhi ‘Aabed.
Palestine TV said the apartment of Ahmad’s parents was 140 square meters and provided shelter to six family members, while the two apartments of Abdul-Rahman’s parents were 250 square meters and provided shelter to seven family members.
Palestine TV added that Abdul-Rahman’s father and his grandfather own the apartments that were demolished after an Israeli court denied the family’s appeal and claimed that Abdul-Rahman lived in both homes.
The two Palestinian and one Israeli soldier were killed during an exchange of gunfire near the village of Jalama, north of Jenin.
The soldier killed during the invasion on September 14 was identified as the deputy commander of the Nahal Reconnaissance Battalion, Maj. Bar Pelach, 30.
Hundreds of Palestinians marched from Ibn Sina Specialized Hospital carrying the corpses of the two slain Palestinians, chanting for unity, ongoing resistance against the illegal Israeli occupation, and denouncing the escalating Israeli violence.
The invasion into Kafr Dan is still ongoing while the town remains surrounded, and soldiers continue to isolate the area of the two homes.
Last year, the Israeli forces killed 224 Palestinians in the occupied territories, 52 of them were in the Gaza Strip. 48 of those killed were children.
Israeli forces also injured more than 9,000 Palestinians, demolished 950 Palestinian homes, and confiscated 113,435 acres of land in the region.
