Thousands of Palestinians took part today in the funeral procession of the two Palestinian youths who were assassinated by Israeli forces during a furious military raid in the northern West Bank city of Nablus early Sunday morning.
The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Mohammad Azizi, 25, and Abdelrhman Soboh, 28, were reportedly shot dead by the Israeli occupation forces during a military raid into Nablus.
Local sources reported that after midnight, Israeli special forces unit of Yamam raided the al-Yasmina neighborhood in the Old City of Nablus and cordoned off and attacked a house, in which a number of Palestinians were inside, for about four hours.
The forces then bombed the house with explosives and gunfire killing the two Palestinians. 12 others were also injured with Israeli gunfire, including one described to be in critical condition.
A day of mourning and a general strike were declared following the killing in Nablus.
Since the start of 2022, Israeli forces have killed more than 65 Palestinians, including Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.
