During an operation in the northern occupied West Bank city of Jenin, Israeli troops shot and killed two Palestinian males, including a doctor.

The Palestinian health ministry named the doctor as Abdullah al-Ahmad, in his forties, and said that Israeli troops shot him in the head in front of the Jenin public hospital on Friday morning.

A spokeswoman for the health ministry informed Al Jazeera that Mateen Dabaya, 20, was the second person murdered on Friday morning.

In a statement, the Jenin Brigades, a last-year-formed Palestinian armed resistance group, named Dabaya as a local leader inside their organization.

Mohammad Awawdeh, a ministry spokesman, said that Dabaya was fatally shot. According to the health ministry, at least five more Palestinians were injured by live fire on Friday morning in Jenin.

The official news agency Wafa reported on Friday that a Palestinian young man had died from injuries received during his detention by Israeli authorities last month.

Mohammad Maher Ghawadreh,17, was recognized by Wafa and the Detainees Commission of the Palestinian Authority.

Ghawadreh, a refugee from the Jenin camp passed away in the Tel Hashomer hospital in Israel. On September 5, he was detained for reportedly opening fire on a bus full of Israeli troops in the occupied Jordan Valley, wounding seven.
