On Thursday, Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinians, including a child, and injured at least four others, in Jenin and Jenin refugee camp, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Farouq Salama

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed that undercover Israeli soldiers shot Farouq Jamil Hasan Salama, 28, in the head, chest, and abdomen, causing serious wounds.

It added that the Palestinian was rushed to Jenin governmental hospital but succumbed to his profoundly serious wounds.

The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) said Farouq was engaged, and his wedding was scheduled to be held Saturday.

The Israeli army said it invaded the Jenin refugee camp to arrest Farouq, a member of the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, before exchanging fire with him and other Palestinian fighters.

Israeli National News said the invasion was carried out by member of Border Police’s “undercover Arab unit”, operating with Israeli soldiers and the Israel Security Agency – Shabak.

The Israeli army was also trying to abduct another Palestinian in the Jenin refugee camp but were unable to do so due to the fire exchange and withdrew from the area.

The soldiers also killed a child, Mohammad Samer Khallouf, 14, from Burqin town, west of Jenin, after shooting him with live fire in Jenin refugee camp.

The Palestinian was shot after many army vehicles invaded Jenin and Jenin refugee camp and surrounded a shop, leading to protests, before the army fired a barrage of live fire.

Earlier Thursday, the soldiers killed two Palestinians, Amer Halabiyya, 20, from Beit Hanina, and Daoud Mahmoud Rayyan, 42, from Beit Duqqu, near occupied Jerusalem.

A day earlier, on November 2nd, the soldiers killed Habes Abdul-Hafith Rayyan, 54, after shooting him at a military roadblock west of Ramallah in the central part of the occupied West Bank.
