JENIN: Israeli forces killed another two Palestinians during what it said was a raid in the occupied West Bank early on Wednesday, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported, bringing to five the number of Palestinians killed in different incidents within several hours.

Yousef Nimer, a witness, said Israeli forces began firing at people he was sitting with outside a hospital in the city of Jenin as they were finishing Suhur, the meal before sunrise during the Muslim fasting month of Ramazan.

“I told them, look, there is something coming towards us. We ran away, then a sniper started to shoot at us. Some crawled and some ran away. The people who ran away got injured and those who crawled were saved,” said Nimer, who was wounded in the incident and pointed to a hole he said had been made by a bullet in one of the hospital’s walls.

In a separate incident on Wednesday, Israeli police said an armed civilian guard shot and “neutralised” a suspect in a stabbing attack at a military checkpoint between occupied Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Israel army says about 4,500 Hezbollah targets hit in five months

The condition of the suspect, whom police identified as a 15-year-old Palestinian, was not immediately clear.

Israel’s ambulance service said two security personnel who sustained mild to moderate stab wounds had been taken to hospital.

Israeli forces shot dead a 13-year-old Palestinian from a refugee camp on the outskirts of Jerusalem on Tuesday night, and killed two others at a checkpoint, Israeli police said.

The police said the boy was shot after aiming fireworks at forces stationed in an observation post.

In the checkpoint incident, the police said five people were seen igniting explosives and intending to hurl them at the road, prompting Israeli forces to open fire and arrest the suspects.

It did not confirm any deaths and said there were no casualties among its ranks. Israel has stepped up its so-called raids in the occupied West Bank since the Gaza war began in October.

United Nations’ records show at least 358 people in the Palestinian territory have been killed since Oct. 7, a quarter of them children.

Israel’s air and ground aggression on blockaded Gaza has killed more than 31,000 people and wounded over 71,500, according to Gaza health authorities.

The offensive has flattened much of Gaza and displaced most of its 2.3 million population, one-quarter of whom the UN says are a step away from famine.

South Africa has accused Israel of state-led genocide at the World Court, which Israel denies.
