• Updated: Israeli Soldiers Kill Three Palestinians In Nablus
    May 22, 2023 - IMEMC News

    On Monday dawn, the Palestinian Health Ministry said Israeli soldiers killed three Palestinians and injured four others, one seriously, after the army invaded the Balata refugee camp, the largest Palestinian refugee camp, near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

    In a statement, the Health Ministry confirmed the death of the three young Palestinian men, adding that the soldiers also shot four young men, including one in a life-threatening condition.

    The Health Ministry said the soldiers killed Mohammad Bilal Zeitoun, 32, Fathi Jihad Abdul-Salem Rezeq, 30, and Abdullah Yousef Mohammad Abu Hamdan, 24.

    The Palestinians were killed and injured when a large military force, in many armored vehicles, invaded the refugee camp at dawn, leading to protests, before the soldiers fired a barrage of live rounds, in addition to many rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

    The soldiers also detonated three Palestinian homes during the invasion, including a home owned by the local Abu Shallal family.

    The Palestinian TV said the soldiers did not inform the families, living near the homes, about their intention to detonate the properties.

    The explosions caused serious damage not only to the targeted homes but also to the surrounding properties, especially the ones above the properties in the same building.

    Many surrounding homes sustained considerable property damage, especially since the refugee camp is densely populated with narrow alleys and attached properties. (...)
