Two Palestinians were shot dead and another was injured during clashes with Israel’s armed forces in Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) tweeted on Wednesday that the incident occurred overnight during an operation in Jenin after “Palestinian assailants opened fire & hurled explosives” at its troops.

“In response, forces shot towards attackers,” the IDF was cited by Efe news as saying.

Palestinian news agency Wafa identified the victims as Saad Naser Salah, 21, who was shot in the head and died immediately, and Aous Mohammad Salameh, 17, who died later in hospital.

Medical and local sources reported that another person was injured in the clashes, while online daily Ynet said no injuries were reported among Israeli soldiers.
