Occupation troops kill two young Palestinians and keep corpses

RAMALLAH, June 21 (KUNA) -- The Israeli occupation forces on Friday shot dead two Palestinians in the town of Qalqiliah, the West Bank.
Mahmoud Zaid, 28, and Ihab Abu Hamed, 29, were shot dead by the occupation forces, and their corpses were kept by the troops, said the Palestinian civil affairs authority in a terse statement.
Local sources said the pair had been fired upon while they were in a vehicle. Video clips showed the occupation troops pulling the two martyrs' bodies from the vehicle and dropping them onto the ground. They also prevented medics from reaching the martyrs.
The occupation police said in a statement that the two martyrs belonged to the Islamic Jihad group and that one of them planned to carry out a security operation against the Israeli troops. (end) nq.rk
