Newspaper Review: Two Palestinian youths killed by Israel focus of dailies

RAMALLAH, Thursday, January 26, 2023 (WAFA) – News about the two Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem hit the front pages of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies on Thursday.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida, al-Ayyam and al-Quds said that a 20-year-old Palestinian from Jenin refugee camp, identified as Aref Abdul Nasser Lahlouh, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilya.

Israel informed the Palestinian side that Lahlouh was killed following an alleged stabbing attack near the settlement of Kadumim but that none of its forces were hurt.

The dailies added that a Palestinian Wednesday evening succumbed to his wounds sustained earlier by Israeli army gunfire in Shufat refugee camp, northeast of the occupied West Bank city of East Jerusalem, according to local sources.

They confirmed that 17-year-old Mohammad Ali died of his critical wounds he sustained earlier after being shot by Israeli army in the chest with a live round in the course of confrontations with Israeli forces that raided the camp.

According to the papers, the Israeli occupation forces demolished the family home of Udai Tamimi, 22, who was killed by Israeli gunfire on October 19 near the illegal settlement of Maale Adumim, east of Jerusalem.

A large force surrounded a building in the town of Anata, northeast of Jerusalem, and proceeded to tear down the sixth-floor apartment of the Tamimi family.

Additionally, the Israeli military demolished structures in Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank, said the dailies.

The papers reported that the Israeli occupation forces demolished six Palestinian-owned homes in the village of al-Diyouk al-Tahta, west of the ancient city of Jericho, under the pretext of construction in Area C of the occupied West Bank without a permit.
