Twenty-eight Palestinians were wounded after Israeli forces stormed al-Ama'ari refugee camp near Ramallah this Monday morning, WAFA reported.

 

Israeli forces used live ammunition at the scene after clashes broke out between soldiers and Palestinian youth. According to initial reports, the raid was to search for two members of Fatah Tanzim. Three Palestinians were later arrested.

The crackdown came one day after six Palestinians were fatally shot in the West Bank, in four separate incidents over the weekend.

In an alleged stabbing attack, 18-year-old Kilzar Muhammah Ad al-Halim Azmi al-Eweiei was shot dead near Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron on Saturday.

On Sunday, Israeli forces killed two 15-year-old Palestinian boys, Nihad Raed Waked and Fuad Marwan Waked, in the village of al-Araqa, west of Jenin.

 

In a public statement, Israeli spokesperson said that two teenagers were hurling rocks at passing vehicles. The two boys were later targeted after one of them allegedly fired at the soldiers. Israeli forces prevented medical teams from reaching the scene after the incident, Ma'an News reported.

Less than four hours later at the Mazmuriya checkpoint, north of Bethlehem, a 17-year-old Palestinian, Naeem Ahmad Yousif Safi, was fatally shot. The teenager was killed after being spotted with a knife.

Two Palestinians, who opened fired at the Israeli forces outside of Jerusalem's walled Old City on Sunday night, were also immediately shot and killed. Multiple rounds of gunfire were heard outside of the Damascus Gate Plaza, at the entrance to the Old city, although there was no report of other casualties. The two Palestinians were later identified as Mansour Shawamreh and Amar Mohammad Amr, both from al-Qibya, northwest of Ramallah.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, since early October, 177 Palestinians were killed, over 15,000 others injured. The unrest erupted with a series of alleged stabbing attacks that have led to 27 Israelis deaths. Since the beginning of the unrest, there have been almost daily reports of Palestinian killings by Israeli security forces.
