Israeli forces kill two Palestinians in occupied West Bank

The Israeli army has killed two Palestinian men during a raid on a village near the city of Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank.

Fouad Mohammad Abed, 25 and Mohammad Samer Hoshiyeh, 22 were shot dead early on Monday in Kufr Dan, northwest of Jenin.

One person is in critical condition, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.

The two men shot dead on Monday are the first Palestinians to be killed by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank this year, as a result of an ongoing Israeli military campaign of intensified raids and killings for almost a year.

The United Nations (UN) marked 2022 as the deadliest year for Palestinians in the West Bank in 16 years.

Israeli forces killed at least 171 Palestinians in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem in 2022, including more than 30 children. At least 9,000 others have been injured.
