JENIN, Sunday, September 26, 2021 (WAFA) – Two Palestinians were shot dead early today morning in an Israeli military raid of the village of Burqin, to the west of Jenin city in the north of the occupied West Bank, medical and security sources have said.
Israeli occupation forces (IOF) reportedly stormed the village at predawn time and cordoned off a house before raiding it and physically assaulting its owner and detaining him. The detainee was identified as Mohammad Zir'ini.
The Israeli attack on the village clashes with angry local residents. The soldiers fired live gunfire at the protesters, killing two of them and injuring at least four.
One of the two Palestinians killed by IOF was identified as Osama Yaser Soboh, 22. The other one is yet to be identified, and his body was reportedly taken away by IOF soldiers.
Clashes also erupted between IOF soldiers and angry local residents following an Israeli raid of the neighboring village of Kafr Dan. At least two Palestinians were detained by the Israeli military during the raid.
Earlier last night, an Israeli undercover force hiding in a vehicle with Palestinian registration plates kidnapped two Palestinian young men from their car, which was parked in a fuel station in nearby Jenin city.
