Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinians during a raid in the northern West Bank, Palestinian officials said.
This is the latest conflict between the two sides this year, making 2022 the deadliest year of violence in the occupied territory since 2015.
The raid was carried out in the Jenin refugee camp in the northern part of the West Bank, where Israeli forces and armed men and local residents regularly clash. The camp is known as a stronghold of Palestinian fighters and the Israeli military often conducts operations there.
Palestinian officials said soldiers entered the camp early this morning and surrounded a house.
The exchange of fire can be heard in the videos published on social networks.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that two people were killed and 11 were wounded, three of them in critical condition.
The Israeli military said it had arrested a wanted man and reported an exchange of fire in Jenin.
She gave no other details. Today’s killing came two days after two Palestinian teenagers, aged 14 and 17, were killed by Israeli fire in separate incidents elsewhere in the West Bank.
Since the beginning of this year, more than 100 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli military operations against extremists and more than 2,000 have been arrested in night raids.
The military operations began after a series of Palestinian attacks that killed 19 people between mid-March and early May.
