Two Palestinian young men were killed and another was wounded at dawn Monday when soldiers opened fire at them near Kafr Ni'ma town in Ramallah.

The Israeli occupation army claimed that the young men carried out a car-ramming attack and threw Molotov cocktails at soldiers.

According to the Hebrew news website 0404, Israeli soldiers opened fire at three young men, killing two of them, after they threw Molotov cocktails. Another one suffered bullet injuries and was detained

Israel’s Channel 10, for its part, said that two Israeli soldiers were wounded after a Palestinian car ran them over in an area near Kafr Ni’ma town, west of Ramallah.

The Channel added that other soldiers responded immediately and opened fire at three young men aboard the car, killing two and injuring another. 

Eyewitnesses reported that the Israeli occupation forces detained a Red Crescent ambulance crew and prevented it from going to the scene to provide medical assistance for the Palestinians.

Later, violent clashes broke out between local youths and Israeli forces at the main entrance to Kafr Ni’ma town. Live and rubber bullets were reportedly used by soldiers during the skirmishes, but luckily no one was injured.
