under-cover forces of the Israeli army, local sources reported.

The sources stated that an under-cover unit of the Israeli army infiltrated into Nablus using a local-licensed vehicle, ambushed the two and opened fire at them.

The two were identified as Adel Abu Al Reesh, 24, and his cousin Firas Abu Al Reesh, 22. Both were hit by several rounds of live ammunition fired at them from a close range.

The two were hit after the army invaded the town and clashed with dozens of youth who hurled stones at them. Ten residents, mainly children, were injured.

Medical sources reported that most of the injuries were in the upper body-parts, especially in the chest.
