Palestinian medical officials say Israeli forces killed two Palestinian youths on Wednesday (July 12). The incident happened during an overnight raid on a refugee camp in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said Palestinian assailants opened fire and hurled explosives at them. In response, IDF soldiers shot towards the attackers.

Camp residents made no mention of any Palestinian gunfire in their accounts of the raid in which they said rocks were thrown at the troops.

The UN has reported that both Israeli and Palestinian security forces conduct regular operations in the camp that often result in clashes and violence.
