Israeli occupying forces opened fire at three Palestinians killing two and injuring one after an accident which made their vehicle crash into a soldiers’ vehicle.

Israeli Occupying forces Monday killed two Palestinians and injured one after they allegedly rammed their car into an Israeli soldiers’ vehicle in the occupied West Bank.

The troops open fire on the vehicle in the Kafr Nimeh village, west of Ramallah. The locals said that it was a normal car accident while the Israeli soldiers claimed it to be an attack.

The Palestinian foreign minister Riyad Maliki said that the incident was “a brutal execution” in which two young men were shot in cold blood.

Locals identified the murdered Palestinians as Amir Mahmoud Jumaa Darraj, 20, from the Kharbatha al-Misbah village, and Youssef Raed Mahmoud Anqawi, 20, from Beit Sira.

According to local media, the three of them were workers and were on their way to work when they were surprised by Israeli soldiers. This made their car slip on the wet road hitting a military vehicle. The crash resulted in the injuring of two soldiers.

“Assailants ran over a number of soldiers who had stopped at the side of the road on their way out of the village. An [army] officer was severely injured and a Border Police soldier was lightly injured as a result,” said a statement from the Israeli military.
