Two Palestinian youths were shot and killed this evening at the hands of an Israeli settler and soldiers after an alleged shooting attack on the Ramallah-Nablus road, which resulted in the killing of four Israeli settlers and the injury of others.

Palestinian security sources said that 26-year-old Mohannad Shehadeh, from the village of Orif to the south of Nablus, was fatally shot by an Israeli settler’s gunfire following the alleged shooting attack that took place at the entrance to the settlement of Elie, north of Ramallah.

Another Palestinian, identified as Khaled Sabah, 24, also from the village of Orif, was shot and killed near Tubas after a pursuit by Israeli soldiers following the shooting attack.

The Ministry of Health said Sabah’s body was riddled with bullets to the head, chest and arm.

He was brought dead to a hospital in Tubas.

Israel claims the two youths were involved in the shooting attack.

A total of 172 Palestinians were killed in the occupied territories since the start of the year at the hands of Israeli occupation forces.
