Three Palestinians shot dead in an Israeli attack on Beit Anan

Three Palestinians were shot dead by the Israeli occupation forces in an attack early today morning which targeted a house in the village of Beit Anan, to the northwest of occupied Jerusalem, the Ministry of Health has confirmed.

Witnesses told WAFA that the Israeli occupation army sealed off a house in the village and embarked on firing grenades, bombs and gunfire at it, and that explosions were heard during the raid.

A video which was shared on the social media showed Israeli occupation soldiers taking away a body believed to belong to a Palestinian young man whom they killed during the attack, shortly before MoH confirmed that the total number of victims was three.

The three martyrs were identified as Ahmad Zahran, Mahmoud Hmeidan and Zakaria Badwan.

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) sealed off the village and declared it a closed military zone in the aftermath of the deadly attack.

A one-day general strike was declared in the villages of Beit Anan and Biddu in protest of the Israeli crime.
