RAMALLAH: The Palestinian Health Ministry said that Israeli troops killed two Palestinians on Tuesday in an attack on a refugee camp near the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.  According to the Ministry, the two persons were shot dead in the Fawwar refugee camp.

A local from the camp said that Israeli troops attacked the camp from its northern and southern entrances. He added that the two persons were killed just outside their houses. He added following the death of the first individual there were clashes in which at least five others were injured and one of them later killed.

Since the conflict in Gaza started, plenty of stickers, posters, and leaflets in the occupied West Bank have asked Palestinians to boycott Israeli products and buy local products.

As Israel continued targeting civilian infrastructures, the Gaza health ministry on Tuesday reported that more than 20,915 Palestinians, mostly children and women, have been killed in the besieged Gaza Strip since the launch of Israel’s military campaign on October 7.

More than 54,918 individuals have been wounded during more than 11 weeks of relentless Israeli bombardments in the Gaza Strip.

In the last 24 hours alone, the health ministry confirmed 241 more deaths and 382 new injuries, underlining the current severity of the situation in the Gaza Strip as Israel intensified its brutal military attacks.

Adding to the distress, Israeli air strikes targeted the Palestinian Red Crescent Society headquarters in the al-Amal district, western Khan Younis. The attack caused huge damage to the upper floor of the building, impacting the entire facility and neighboring properties.

Last week’s UNSC resolution called for the “unhindered and safe delivery of humanitarian help at scale” — but did not call for an immediate ceasefire to end the fighting in the Strip.
