Days of Palestine, West Bank -Israeli occupation forces murdered on Thursday morning two Palestinian youth at entrance of illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel, south of West Bank city of Nablus.
Credible witnesses spoke to Days of Palestine that the Israeli occupation troops noted the two Palestinians near an Israeli bus, when Israeli settlers were taking off.
“Immediately, the Israeli soldiers opened fire at the Palestinian youths leaving them bleeding for more than 25 minutes,” one of the eyewitness said.
According to conformed accounts of eyewitnesses, a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance arrived in the scene to evacuate the two youths before they die, but the Israeli troops refused.
Israeli media reported that the two Palestinian youths stabbed a female Israeli soldier, who was seriously wounded.
More than three eyewitnesses stressed that they saw one Israeli soldier planting a knife in the hand of one of the Palestinians, while he was bleeding.
Regarding the reported wounded Israeli soldier, the eyewitnesses doubted the Israeli media reports, but they expected she might have been wounded fellow soldiers.
The Palestinian Authority ministry of health confirmed the death of the two Palestinians from Salfit, but it said that identities of both are still unknown.
