Four Palestinian teens have been killed by Israeli occupation forces in less than 24 hours. Having fatally shot two in different locations in the occupied West Bank, the forces killed two more in Jenin about two hours later.

17-year-old Mahdi Ladadwe, Mahmoud Assos 18, and Ahmed Daragma 16, were amongst the casualties. Mahmoud and Ahmed were killed in Jenin in a large army raid on Saturday morning as reported by the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Mahmoud was shot in the neck while Ahmed was hit in the head.

The occupying forces had deployed armoured vehicles, bulldozers, military helicopters, and combat drones were reportedly deployed in the raid. In response, Palestinian fighters took to live fire while unarmed civilians confronted the Israeli soldiers with stones.


A man identified as Saleh Abu Zeneh was arrested. 11 people were reportedly injured during the raid the Israeli army calls an arrest operation.

Local media reported that Palestinian journalists and medics were denied access during the raid. The Palestinian news agency Wafa said Israeli troops shot in the direction of a group of journalists who were taking cover in the area.
