(Nablus) Two Palestinians were shot and killed Monday by Israeli forces in the northern occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.

In a short statement, the ministry reported two “martyrs” killed by “occupation” (Israeli) bullets in Nablus. He did not identify them.

The IDF said it carried out an “anti-terrorist” operation in Nablus, during which two people suspected of helping the perpetrator of an attack in March were arrested.

“During the operation, a number of gunmen fired at the soldiers, who responded by opening fire. Affected people have been identified,” a military statement said.

Since the start of the year, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has claimed the lives of at least 90 Palestinians, 15 Israelis and one Ukrainian, according to an AFP tally compiled from official Israeli and Palestinian sources.

These figures include, on the Palestinian side, combatants and civilians, including minors, and on the Israeli side, mostly civilians, including minors, and two members of the Arab minority.

On Saturday, three Israelis were injured in a vehicular attack in the West Bank, Palestinian territory occupied by Israel since 1967. The alleged perpetrator was killed by soldiers.

Less than 24 hours earlier, Israeli police shot and killed an Arab Israeli who they said grabbed a policeman’s gun and fired it in the Old City of Jerusalem, an area occupied and annexed by Israel. His family disputes this version of the facts.
