Friday 21-June-2024


At least two citizens were killed on Friday afternoon after Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire at a passing by vehicle in the center of Qalqilya.

Eyewitnesses reported that an Israeli special force infiltrated the city of Qalqilya from the eastern entrance, adding that the special force escorted by the IOF started shooting at a car in the city center, wounding those inside it and causing the car to collide in the sidewalk in front of a shop before it could stop.

Meanwhile, the IOF prevented ambulance crews and citizens from reaching the assassination site.

Footage showed Israeli troops encircling the vehicle and taking two young men out of the car with bodies of at least two martyrs seen near the car.

Local sources reported that the IOF withdrew from the city after they had seized the vehicle and kidnapped the bodies of the two young men, adding that two citizens, who were present at the site, were slightly injured.
