Israeli forces kill 2 Palestinians in West Bank

IRNA – The Israeli armed forces have shot two Palestinians dead in the Wes Bank, Qatari media ‘ Al Jazeera’ said.

According to Qatari media, Israelis killed Palestinian youths on the pretext of the so-called plot to kill Zionist forces.

The incident happened hours after Zionists’ jetfighters’ attacks on Palestinian resistance movement Hamas watch towers in northern Gaza.

Earlier on January 22, the Israeli regime declared start of air attacks on northern Gaza on the pretext of retaliating targeting a Zionist soldier. They killed a Resistance member affiliated to Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and injured two others in an artillery attack on eastern Bureij.

The great ‘March of Return’ rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe, a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel’s establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have continued since then.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 2400 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded about 26,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.

This is while, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has passed an enactment to provide sustainable budget for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
