Tuesday 28-November-2023

Two Palestinians were killed, including a child, and many others were injured by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Tuesday.

The Health Ministry affirmed that the body of a Palestinian young man arrived at the Palestine Medical Complex after being fatally shot by IOF gunfire in Beitunia town.

Local sources affirmed that the young man, Yassin Abdullah Al-Asmar, 26, was shot dead in the chest when confrontations broke out in Beitunia town, while another young man was injured in the foot.

The 17-year-old teen Malik Barghouthi also succumbed to his gunshot wounds in Kafr Ain town, northwest of Ramallah.

Also in Ramallah, two young men were injured in Deir Ammar camp after being violently stormed by IOF troops amid heavy live fire, which led to the outbreak of violent confrontations.

The two injured were taken to the hospital, suffering foot wounds.

During the raid, the IOF surrounded the house of the martyr Daoud Abdel Razek Daras who was killed on August 31 following an alleged car-ramming attack.

The soldiers later blew it up after storming and evacuating the neighboring houses.

The demolition operation comes as part of the Israeli collective punishment policy against families of prisoners and martyrs.
