Israeli Forces Kill 2 Rioting Palestinians During West Bank Raid
Two Palestinian men were killed during an arrest raid in Jenin in the West Bank overnight on Monday. At least one of the men was carrying a weapon and video posted online showed him shooting at Israeli troops. The dead men were identified as Abdullah al-Hosari, 22, and Shadi Najm, 19. Some 150 Palestinians began rioting after Israel Border Police made an arrest of an alleged terrorist in Jenin, according to reports. The officers responded with live fire to the rioting, which included gunfire as well as stones, Molotov cocktails and an improvised grenade.
Al-Hosari was said to be a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s al-Quds Brigades, and Najm was reportedly involved with the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.
Hamas called for a day of rage on Tuesday in response to the deaths of the two men.
