STILL MEDIA SILENCE!!! Slaughtrer Zionist Israeli forces shoot dead two Palestinians in West Bank
Israeli forces have shot and killed two Palestinians over an alleged stabbing attack in the occupied West Bank.
The military claimed that the youths stabbed an Israeli soldier in al-Khalil (Hebron) on Thursday.
The soldier was transferred to a hospital in al-Quds (Jerusalem) with stab wounds in the shoulder and hand.
Israeli soldiers, however, prevented medics and ambulances from taking care of the wounded Palestinian youths before they passed away, a Palestinian television said.
Israeli soldiers killed another Palestinian youth last week near the Abu al-Arish checkpoint in al-Khalil.
The victim was identified as 17-year-old Abdullah Muhammad al-Ajlouni. Witnesses said the young man was “showered” with bullets at the checkpoint near the illegal Israeli Kiryat Arba settlement.
Al-Khalil, the largest West Bank city, has witnessed escalated tensions between some 200,000 Palestinians and several hundred Israelis living in illegal settlements under heavy military guard.
Tensions have heightened in the occupied territories since August 2015, when Israel imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam after Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina.
At least 208 Palestinians, including children and women, have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since the beginning of last October.
