Israelis kill two Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank

Israeli forces killed two Palestinians on Friday and wounded more than 30 others in the besieged Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank

A spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of Health said that the Israeli occupation forces shot dead Hani Wahdan, 22, to the east of Al-Sheja’ea in Gaza City. Nine other Palestinians were wounded, confirmed Ashraf Al-Qidra. Four more, including a child, were wounded by the Israelis near the refugee camp of Al-Burij, in the territory’s middle area.

Medical sources confirmed that four of those wounded were admitted to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital. The same sources pointed out that six other Palestinians were wounded in Al-Farahin, to the east of Khan Younis. Tens others suffered respiratory problems after inhaling tear gas fired by the Israeli occupation forces.

Meanwhile, the Israelis shot dead a Palestinian woman in Silwad, near the main West Bank city of Ramallah. Mahdiyeh Hammad, 40, was killed while she was driving her car.

According to witnesses, Israeli forces stationed in the western area of Silwad opened fire at the woman and hit her in several parts of her body. The Israelis then prevented an ambulance from reaching the victim of their murderous violence.

An Israeli army spokesperson claimed that Hammad had attempted to run over Israeli soldiers before she was killed.
