Israeli forces kill 3 Palestinians in al-Quds, West Bank

The Israeli military has killed three Palestinians, including two members of the Gaza-based Hamas resistance movement, in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.

Israeli forces shot dead a young Palestinian over an alleged stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem al-Quds on Thursday.

Israeli sources said the Palestinian from the West Bank allegedly stabbed and lightly wounded two Israeli policemen. The identity of the victim is still unkown.

Palestinian news outlets said Barghouti, 29, was killed when Israeli troops opened fire on a taxi he was traveling on a road in the town of Surda, a village near Ramallah.

The Israeli military regularly opens fatal fire on Palestinians, accusing them of seeking to attack its personnel.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, Israeli troops also killed two Palestinians accused by the regime’s military of carrying out shooting attacks.

Ashraf Na’alwa, 23, was reportedly killed when Israeli forces tried to arrest him on Thursday. He was accused of killing two Israelis in the Barkan industrial zone of the occupied West Bank in October.

Late Wednesday, Israeli forces killed Salih Omar Barghouti who was suspected of the drive-by shooting attack on a bus stop outside Ofra settlement on Sunday night.

Hamas – which governs the Israeli-besieged Gaza Strip -- on Thursday confirmed that those killed were its members.

“Resistance in the West Bank will never stop until the (Israeli) Occupation is removed from all our land and we regain all our rights,” Hamas said.

The Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority also blame Israel’s illegal settlement activities on occupied Palestinian land for renewed tensions in the West Bank.

“The international community bears part of the responsibility for the aggression by the occupation and the settlers because of its silence towards these attacks,” said Palestinian government spokesman Youssef Al-Mahmoud.
