Two Palestinian males were shot and killed by Israeli soldiers during a raid near Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank.

Two men were murdered in a vehicle outside the Jalazone refugee camp north of Ramallah. The official Palestinian news agency, Wafa, named them Bassel Qassem Basbous, age 18, and Khaled Fadi Anbar, age 21.

Raafat Habash, 19, was also in the vehicle and was injured during the shooting.

The Israeli army took the remains of the two guys after they were slain, while Habash was apprehended.

A witness who requested anonymity stated that the incident occurred outside his residence.

“Around 3:30 a.m., I heard gunfire, and when I peeped out of my window, I saw a car with men who had been shot,” he told Al Jazeera.

“The troops dragged them from the vehicle and placed them on the roadside. They were allowed to bleed for almost 40 minutes on the ground. They then removed their bodies.”

“The most likely scenario is that the three were ambushed by the army,” the guy claimed, adding that Israeli troops had been concealed in several positions in the area where the men’s vehicle had been.
