On Thursday, 2 Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli troops during clashes in the Gaza Strip and the Israeli-occupied West Bank, according to the medical source and witnesses.

“Warning shots were fired at one location, but when the rioting continued, shots were fired at three main instigators who posed a threat to the soldiers and to the security fence,” the spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman said troops searching the area for the suspects in the killing of an Israeli settler who was shot dead earlier this week, had come under attack from “a massive barrage of rocks” and that armed forces had fired at the main agitator.
