Israeli Troops Kill Two Palestinians During Home Demolition in Occupied West Bank

HeadlineJan 03, 2023

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinians and wounded three others in a raid on a village outside Jenin overnight Sunday. The killings came as Israel’s army worked to demolish the family homes of two Palestinians who were killed in a shootout in September. This is Hani Abed, whose home was demolished.

Hani Abed: “They made two families homeless. They were vengeful. And this is collective punishment. If they could, they would demolish the entire area. … The policy that the occupation implements will definitely not bring the result they are expecting. They will not break our spirit. On the contrary, this will make people more determined and steadfast, God willing.”
