West News Wire: During a raid in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces killed two Palestinian teens and injured nearly a dozen others, bringing the total number of fatal shootings in the previous 24 hours to four.

According to the official Palestinian news agency Wafa, covert soldiers invaded the Jenin refugee camp early on Saturday morning before Israeli military vehicles came into the camp from different directions, resulting in altercations with locals.

Israeli military helicopters flew low above the camp and the surrounding regions, preventing journalists and ambulances from entering.

A group of journalists covering the attack was also immediately fired upon by Israeli armed personnel with live ammunition.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement that Ahmad Mohammad Daraghmeh and Mahmoud as-Sous, both 17-year-old, were fatally shot in the head and neck respectively, while 11 others were injured during the Israeli army raid.

Those injured in the attack were rushed to nearby hospitals for medical treatment. Doctors and medical staff have described the condition of three of them as critical.

The ministry noted that a father, named Anwar Abu as-Sebaa, and his daughter, Iman, were injured after an Israeli military vehicle ran them over as they were standing in front of their home in the camp.

The attacks came hours after Israeli soldiers shot and killed two Palestinian teenagers in separate incidents in the occupied West Bank.
