Jenin (The Inside Palestine)- Israeli occupation forces shot and killed two Palestinian youths during a military raid in the Jenin refugee camp, in Jenin city, north of the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed on Tuesday.
After the midnight, Israeli special units raided the Jenin refugee camp while driving Palestinian-registrated vehicles, security sources said.

The well-armed Israeli special forces started raiding the Palestinians’ houses, occupied the houses’ roofs and fired live bullets indiscriminately at anyone moving, killing a 22-year-old former detainee, identified as Abdullah al-Husari, and critically injuring two others in the head and abdomen.
19-year-old Shadi Najim, one of the two injured, succumbed to his critical wounds in the head, hours later, medical sources said.
Israeli forces have killed thousands of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories over the years, and several international human rights groups say Israeli forces have used excessive force in attacking and subduing Palestinians.
“This policy [opening fire] reflects deep disregard for Palestinian lives and property and enables the continued use of lethal force, crucial to enabling Israel to retain its violent control over millions of Palestinians,” said Israeli human rights group, B’Tselem.
B’Tselem said it had recorded 77 Palestinian deaths at the hands of Israeli forces in the West Bank last year. More than half of those killed were not implicated in any attacks, it noted.
