Israeli Forces Kill Two Palestinians In West Bank As Gaza Raids Continue

Israeli forces have killed two Palestinians and injured three others in the occupied West Bank as air raids hit the Gaza Strip for a fifth consecutive day.

The deadly raid took place in the Balata refugee camp in the city of Nablus.

The men, identified as Adnan Wasim Yousef al-Araj, 19, and Saed Jihad Shaker Mashah, 32, were shot in the head.

One of the injured was a woman in her 50s who was shot multiple times. This latest attack is part of a series of incursions in the occupied West Bank since the start of the year.

In Gaza, Israel has carried out air strikes for a fifth day while sirens sounded in southern Israel after rockets were launched from the besieged territory.

Israeli strikes targeted several cities across the strip, including two neighbourhoods of Gaza City that were completely destroyed. 

Egypt and the United Nations are attempting to secure a ceasefire.

However, hopes of a truce have been dashed by the intensity of the exchange of bombardment on both sides.
