According to Palestinian officials, Israelis shot dead Palestinian teenagers on the occupied West Bank while preparing to destroy a man’s house accused of a recent attack.
Israeli troops shot and killed a 17-year-old Palestinian on the occupied West Bank while Israel described it as an operation to destroy a Palestinian house suspected of having made a recent attack.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health said earlier Monday that Mohammed Abu Sarah was killed in the village of Sirat al-Hartiya near the flash point town of Jenin on the west bank of the Israeli occupation.
The Israeli army said in a statement that the army and border guards had entered the village “to destroy the floor of the dwelling” where Muhammad Jaradat lived.
Jaradat et al. Said they had recently fired a deadly shot of illegal Jewish settlers on the west bank of the occupied Jordan River.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, 10 people were injured when Palestinians clashed with an Israeli team trying to destroy their homes.
Israel regularly destroys private homes accused of attacking Israelis on the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
This often tense practice has been criticized by critics as a form of collective punishment.
Israeli and Palestinian estimates indicate that the occupied West Bank, including the occupied Jerusalem, is home to approximately 650,000 settlers in 164 settlements and 116 outposts.
Under international law, all Jewish settlements in the occupied territories are considered illegal.
Israel occupied the West Bank during the Six-Day War in 1967 and has full administrative control over most of the territory inhabited by more than 2 million Palestinians.
The Israeli colonization of East Jerusalem, annexed to the occupied West Bank, has continued under all Israeli governments since 1967.
