Israeli forces shot dead two Palestinian youth before an Israeli army bulldozer proceeded to climb over and crush the vehicle they were in,  during confrontations which broke out near Joseph’s Tomb, in Nablus city, northern occupied West Bank, on Wednesday morning.

The two were identified as Ra’ed Hashem Hamdan, 21, and Zeid Emad Nouri, 20, and were left without treatment as paramedics were blocked from approaching them, by Israeli forces.

Palestinian Red Crescent crews said, according to the PNN, that they came under fire while trying to reach the wounded, and that the Israeli army prevented them from reaching the wounded.

The sources confirmed that soldiers killed the two youth in cold blood, and walked over the vehicle while they were inside it.

Palestinians announced general strike in Nablus, following the shooting.

It is noteworthy that, last night, Israeli forces killed another Palestinian, Omar Abu Laila,19, who was accused of carrying out a stabbing and a shooting at a checkpoint near Salfit city, northern occupied West Bank.
