On Tuesday, March 15, 2022, three Palestinian young men were killed by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in separate incidents in the West Bank and Negev.
A Palestinian minor was shot dead, and three others suffered bullet injuries during an IOF military raid into Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus.
Red Crescent official Ahmed Jibril affirmed that 17-year-old Nader Rayan was shot dead by IOF gunfire in Balata camp.
The IOF stormed Balata camp and kidnapped a wanted citizen called Ammar Arafat after encircling his house.
Three other young men were reportedly injured when the IOF used live ammunition during the events. The injured were immediately rushed in critical condition to the hospital.
In a separate incident, another Palestinian young man was killed by IOF gunfire in Qalandia refugee camp, northeast of Jerusalem.
The Palestinian health ministry identified the victim as Alaa Shaham, adding that six other young men were also injured by live ammunition during the events.
In Negev, a Palestinian young man was also killed by Israeli police officers at dawn in Rahat City.
The victim was later identified as Sanad Al-Harbed 27.
In recent days, the Israeli occupation has increased its shooting towards Palestinians, despite posing no danger.
Last year, new orders were made allowing Israeli soldiers to shoot at Palestinians throwing stones and Molotov cocktails, even after the act is made, or while withdrawing from the area, and without posing a threat to the Israeli soldiers.
