West Bank: Two brothers among three Palestinians killed by Israel

Jawad and Dhafr Rimawi were killed during an Israeli raid near Ramallah, while another man was killed near Hebron.

Three Palestinian men, including two brothers, have been killed by Israeli fire during separate incidents in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

The two brothers killed on Tuesday were identified by the Palestinian news agency WAFA as Jawad and Dhafr Rimawi, aged 22 and 21. Wafa said they had been killed by Israeli fire during clashes with troops near the village of Kafr Ein, west of Ramallah.

Palestinian Authority civil affairs minister Hussein Al-Sheikh described the murder of the two brothers as a “cold-blooded execution.”

The Israeli army said troops operating in the village were attacked by suspects who threw stones and firebombs, and soldiers returned fire. He said that he was reviewing the incident.

Separately, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian man identified by the Palestinian Health Ministry as Mufid Khalil during a military raid near Hebron.

Khalil was shot in the head and at least eight other people were injured, according to the Health Ministry.

The Israeli army said soldiers had fired on Palestinians who threw stones and improvised explosive devices at them during the raid.

The Israeli army said that the Palestinians also fired on the troops and that two army vehicles were stuck due to mechanical problems.

Israeli military incursions have long been a regular occurrence in the occupied West Bank, resulting in the wounding or killing of unarmed Palestinians.
