Israel kills five Palestinians in Gaza Strip and West Bank
At least six Palestinians on Thursday were killed and 27 wounded in clashes with Israeli troops in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
In one incident in Gaza Strip, three Palestinians, including a 12-year-year-old boy, were killed by invading Israeli forces in the northern Gaza Strip.
The three, including the boy Munir al Daqs, were shot dead when troops opened fire at a group who were throwing stones in their direction in the Jabalya refugee camp, medical and security sources said, according to AFP.
A fourth, a 24-year-old activist of Hamas' armed wing, was earlier killed in an exchange of fire with occupation troops in the camp, medical and security sources said. In addition, 25 people were wounded in Jabalya, including 12 injured in an overnight raid by Israeli combat aircraft. Witnesses said that the helicopters raided Jabalya camp twice leaving dozens wounded and causing severe damage in property.
In the West Bank, a Palestinian youth was killed near the city of Ramallah after being run over by an Israeli jeep.
Three occupation soldiers were also injured on Thursday in separate incidents in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. One soldier was injured by shrapnel after Palestinians fired at an army post near the Gaza Strip settlement of "Neveh Dekalim." Another solider was injured by a mortar shell which landed near Morag settlement in the Gaza Strip. A third soldier suffered light injuries to his eye after a Palestinain with a knife attempted to stab him near Hebron. (albawaba.com)
