Two Palestinians shot dead in IDF hunt for kidnapped Israeli teenagers

Israeli forces have shot and killed two Palestinians during clashes as the IDF continues to search for three Israeli teenagers kidnapped on June 12.

A Palestinian youth was shot dead in the town of Dura in the southern West Bank.

Another young Palestinian was killed close to a check point in Ramallah.

An Israeli army spokesperson said “both incidents” happened during riots in which homemade grenades were thrown at soldiers who then returned live fire.

The search for the three Israeli teenagers called “Brothers Keeper” began a week ago during which five Palestinians have been killed, 1,150 homes and businesses searched and 350 Palestinians detained.

According to the Israeli military there has been no ransom demand, no prisoner swap request or any proof of life.

Israel has accused Hamas of the kidnappings.
