2 Palestinian Fighters Killed in Israeli Raid on Nablus

The Israeli army killed two Palestinians overnight during a military raid in the West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinian and Israeli officials said.

The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the fatalities as Aboud Sobh, 29, and Muhammad Al-Azizi, 22, and said that six people were wounded.

The al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the armed wing of Fatah, claimed the two dead as its members.

The Israeli army confirmed carrying out an operation in the area in a statement that said there were exchanges of fire between armed suspects and troops.

Israeli forces have been carrying out near-daily raids in the West Bank in recent months after deadly street attacks in Israel.

The military has faced resistance during these raids, which in some instances have turned deadly.

The Palestinian attacks on Israelis earlier this year killed 19 people. More than 60 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the start of the year, according to an official Palestinian tally.
