Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Monday morning have shot dead three Palestinian youths in two separate shootings, claiming they intended to carry operatives at the entrance of Kiryat Arba illegal settlement near Hebron.
The Palestinian ministry of health confirmed that the three have passed away. Thyey were identified as Qassem Jaber (31), Naim Al-Junaidi (22) and Youssef Tarayra (18).
IOF claimed to have found “arms” in the first car which was ridden by two youths, and claimed that they were planning to carry out a run-over operative against them.
In the second shooting at the same spot, IOF claimed that the driving youth was intending to run over soldiers and paramedics who were giving first aid to an Israeli soldier injured in the first attack.
Palestinian red crescent said that IOF prevented their paramedics from approaching any of the wounded Palestinians, leading to their death.
