Two Palestinians were killed in an ongoing raid by the Israeli military on Wednesday on the flashpoint West Bank city of Nablus, the Palestinian health ministry said.
“Two killed by occupation (Israeli) bullets in Nablus,” the health ministry said.
At least 36 wounded people had been admitted to hospital, the majority suffering gunshot wounds, the ministry added.
The Israeli military confirmed its forces were operating in the northern West Bank city but when contacted by AFP a spokesperson was unable to provide further details.
An AFP journalist saw Israeli forces fire tear gas at Palestinians, who burned tyres and threw stones at military vehicles.
