PA: 2 Palestinians shot dead by Israel in West Bank protest

Israeli security forces shot and killed two Palestinians with live fire during a day of clashes in the West Bank, according to the Palestinian Authority health ministry.

The Israeli military could not immediately be reached for comment. Three Palestinians have been killed so far today during confrontations with Israeli troops across the West Bank. The Israeli army has said that in some instances, Palestinians have thrown rocks and shot fireworks at soldiers.

Ten West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since Monday, according to publicly available PA health ministry updates. Some were killed in what seem to have been violent clashes, while others were shot in what Israel deems to have been terror attacks.
