Israeli forces killed, on Sunday, two Palestinians and injured two others in the Tulkarem refugee camp in the northwestern part of the occupied West Bank.

On Sunday morning, Israeli special forces, supported by many military vehicles and a bulldozer, stormed the city of Tulkarem from its western entrance.

Later military reinforcements invaded the Tulkarem refugee camp and besieged the Tulkarem camp, while local Palestinians protested the incursion.

Armed Palestinian resistance fighters exchanged fire with the invading army, while soldiers fired live rounds and shot four young men.

On Sunday afternoon, the Ministry of Health reported that Nabil Atta Muhammad Amer, 19, died after soldiers shot him with live ammunition.

Later, the General Authority for Civil Affairs informed the Ministry of Health that Muhammad Ahmad Fayez Al-Awfi, 36, was killed with live rounds by Israeli forces.

Media sources initially reported that the army shot and injured four Palestinians, including a child, who sustained a serious injury.

All those who sustained injuries were transported to the Martyr Thabet Thabet Governmental Hospital in Tulkarem.

Local Palestinians in the camp said that many citizens were injured, and while they contacted ambulances, the army blocked them from entering the camp and impeded their movement.

Soldiers surrounded the home of Muhammad Ahmad Fayez Al-Awfi in the “Martyrs’ Neighborhood” in the camp, while positioning sharpshooters in the area, while military helicopters flew over the city of Tulkarem and its camp.

Palestine TV revealed that the young man sustained a live round round in the head, and it was added that the army confiscated the slain young man’s body and took it to an unknown location.

The occupation army caused destruction to home of the slain young man, Al-Awfi in the camp during the attack.

According to Issam Al-Awfi, the brother of the slain Al-Awfi, said that an undercover force broke into his brother’s home dressed in civilian clothes and fired many live rounds.

He added that occupation soldiers then imposed a siege on the home, forcing family members to leave, before firing a barrage of bullets inside the home.

Al-Awfi told WAFA that his brother was initially injured, but soldiers denied him medical treatment, resulting in a large loss of blood, before the army took the body away.
