Israeli forces have shot dead two more Palestinians in the occupied West Bank as the regime escalates its crackdown there amid its savage military campaign in the besieged Gaza Strip. 

The killings took place at the entrance to the village of Beit Einun near the southern city of al-Khalil. Israeli forces then stormed the village and raided several Palestinian homes.

The Israeli army claims that one of the Palestinians tried to stab a soldier while the other opened fire at the regime’s forces.

This comes after Israeli troops killed 14 Palestinians in the Nur Shams refugee camp in a raid that began on Thursday.

Raids have been carried out in several locations, including al-Khalil, Nablus and Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, according to the Wafa news agency.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said in a statement on Sunday that Israeli forces detained 50 Palestinians, including some who were wounded, during its three-day raid on Nur-Shams refugee camp.

Detainees were reportedly beaten, stripped naked, and tortured with shackles. According to PPS, Israeli forces also threatened to shoot them.

The Tulkarm Governorate and its two camps, Nur-Shams and Tulkarm, have been subject to several Israeli incursions since October.

Tulkarem governor Mustafa Taqatqa has called for a strike and a day of public mourning over the Nur Shams raid.

“All these crimes will not affect the determination of our people and their free will, leading to the end of the occupation and the establishment of our independent Palestinian state,” he was quoted as saying by Wafa.

 Since the start of its onslaught on Gaza in October, Israel has carried out near daily raids in the West Bank. Nearly 500 Palestinians have been killed in the regime’s attacks so far in the occupied region.
