WEST BANK (Dispatches) – Four Palestinian men, including two brothers, have been martyred by Zionist troops’ fire during separate incidents in the occupied West Bank.
The two brothers killed on Tuesday were identified by the Palestinian WAFA news agency as Jawad and Dhafr Rimawi, aged 22 and 21. Wafa said they had been killed during clashes with troops near the village of Kafr Ein, west of Ramallah.
Palestinian Civil Affairs Minister Hussein al-Sheikh described the killing of the two brothers as an “execution in cold blood”.
The report added that Jawad, a new Business Administration graduate from Birzeit University, was shot in the pelvis. His brother Dhafer, a fourth-year Technology student also at the same university, was shot in the chest.
Another Palestinian man fell victim to the regime’s violence in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday. Zionist troops shot dead the man in an alleged car ramming near Ramallah.
The killings came only a few hours after Zionist troops shot dead another Palestinian, named as Mufeed Mohammad Ikhlil, during confrontations in Beit Ummar town, located eleven kilometers northwest of Al-Khalil.
The 44-year-old was shot in the head and died.
Nine others were shot by live bullets as well. One was hit in the chest while the rest were struck in the upper and lower parts of their bodies. They were taken to nearby hospitals, and are said to be in stable condition.
The Palestinian Hamas resistance movement has strongly denounced the death of the Palestinians, stating that the Tel Aviv regime’s crimes will be met with an upsurge in retaliatory attacks and acts of resistance.
Hazem Qassem, a spokesman for the Gaza-based group, said the occupying regime is desperately seeking to suffocate the legitimate struggle of the Palestinian nation to recover their land and enjoy freedom by means of killings and assassinations.
Meanwhile, Russia and China strongly denounced Zionist regime’s excessive use of force against Palestinians amid heightened tensions in the occupied territories.
Speaking at a UN Security Council briefing on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian issue, Russia’s deputy UN ambassador Dmitry Polyanskiy slammed the Israeli regime’s “disproportionate use of force” in the occupied Palestinian territories.
He also warned that the regime’s “unilateral steps”, including expansion of settlements, seizure of Palestinian property, demolition of Palestinian-owned housings, arbitrary arrests, violation of the status quo of Al-Quds’ holy sites continue to create “irreversible facts on the ground”.
Speaking at the same meeting, China’s Ambassador to the UN envoy, Zhang Jun, also expressed his country “deep concern” about the deteriorating security situation in the occupied Palestinian territories.
