Israeli Forces Kill 2 Palestinians in Separate Incidents
13 December 2005
Palestinian witnesses say Israeli troops shot and killed two Palestinian civilians in separate incidents in the West Bank and Gaza Strip Tuesday.
They say soldiers shot dead a Palestinian bystander during a clash with militants in Nablus. Several Palestinians and two soldiers were wounded in the clash that erupted when Israeli troops raided the Palestinian city.
Israeli forces regularly mount raids into West Bank towns to arrest wanted Palestinians.
In the Gaza Strip, witnesses say a Palestinian farmer was killed when Israeli forces fired tank or artillery shells into the territory.
