Two Palestinians killed by Israel in occupied West Bank

Two Palestinians were killed overnight during an Israeli army raid in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

The Palestinian health ministry has said Muhamad Azizi, 25, was killed by a bullet to the chest, while Abdul Rahman Jamal Suleiman Sobh, 28, was shot in the head, Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.

According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, at least 12 others were wounded, including one in serious condition.

“Another crime committed by the occupation forces in the old city of #Nablus, where martyrs have fallen and many wounded,” Hussein al-Sheikh, a senior Palestinian official, said on Twitter.

“We strongly condemn this crime, and we hold the occupation responsibility for its repercussions.”

At least 52 Palestinians have been killed since late March, mostly in the West Bank.
