NABLUS, Monday, April 3, 2023 (WAFA) – Two Palestinian youths have Monday been killed by Israeli gunfire during a military raid into the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to the Ministry of Health.
Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Palestinian Red Crescent Emergency and Ambulance Department in Nablus, said that two Palestinians were severely wounded and taken to the Rafidia hospital, where they were pronounced dead later.
The two slain Palestinians were identified as Mohammad Junaidi Abu Bakr and Mohammad Nasser Said al-Hallaq.
He added that the Israeli soldiers attacked the Nablus with toxic gas bombs.
Jibril noted that the Israeli assault on the city resulted in 55 Palestinians getting suffocated due to inhaling tear gas bombs fired at them by the Israeli forces, while a man was injured in his foot after he was attacked by a police dog.
He said that five houses were additionally evicted while a Red Crescent ambulance was directly attacked by a gas grenade by the soldiers.
The Israeli forces detained two Palestinians and raided several areas in the city.
With the killing of the two Palestinians, the number of Palestinians who have been killed by Israeli forces has risen to 94, including 17 children, one woman and a Palestinian youth from Naqab, a town in Israel.
