Israeli forces conducted a pre-dawn raid in the West Bank, resulting in the deaths of two Palestinians, according to the Palestinian health ministry.
The Israeli army claimed that it had dismantled a militant “operational command centre” during the operation. The violence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has intensified since early last year, with the West Bank witnessing a surge in clashes and incursions.
The Palestinian health ministry identified the two Palestinians killed in the raid as Osaid Abu Ali, 21, and Abd al-Rahman Abu Daghash, 32. The town of Tulkarem, where the incident occurred, saw the Palestinians fatally shot by live Israeli bullets to the head. An Israeli soldier was also injured during clashes in Nur Shams refugee camp near Tulkarem.
During the raid, the Israeli army claimed to have discovered observation devices, computers, and technological devices inside a building used as an alleged “operational command centre”.
