Two Palestinian young men were shot dead by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday evening in Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
According to local sources, a young man was critically injured by IOF gunfire at the entrance of Battir town, west of Bethlehem, before he was pronounced dead later by the Red Crescent.
The Red Crescent said that one of its ambulance crews was able to reach the wounded young man, who suffered serious bullet injuries in his chest and abdomen, but the IOF did not allow it to evacuate him to hospital before he died later.
In east Jerusalem, 15-year-old Mohamed Abu Sneina was shot dead by Israeli police officers in al-Wad street in the Old City on allegations of his attempt to carry out a stabbing attack.
Eyewitnesses said that police officers in al-Wad street opened fire at the child and left him to bleed on the road before kidnaping him aboard an Israeli ambulance. Later, the kid was proclaimed dead.
