RAMALLAH, West Bank – In a tragic turn of events on Tuesday, two Palestinian teenagers lost their lives during Israeli army operations in the occupied West Bank. The surge in violence in this region is mirroring the intensity of the Israel-Hamas conflict in Gaza, as reported by the Palestinian health ministry.

Amir Wahdan, a 14-year-old, met an untimely demise in Tubas in the northern West Bank. The Israeli army claimed that their presence was to apprehend “two wanted suspects.” Witnesses recounted clashes between young Palestinians and Israeli forces, with stones thrown at military vehicles and live fire in response.

Overnight on Monday, another young Palestinian lost their life in Beitunia, a village situated between the Israeli Ofer prison and Ramallah. Tensions escalated as Palestinians gathered to welcome prisoners released in exchange for Israeli hostages. The Israeli army, citing the need to prevent riots, entered Beitunia, where clashes ensued.
The army reported that “assailants hurled explosive devices and Molotov cocktails at the forces and lit up trash on the main road.” In response, Israeli forces used dispersal techniques and live fire.
The West Bank, under Israeli occupation since 1967, has witnessed increased violence since the Oct. 7 attacks by Hamas in southern Israel. The subsequent Israeli retaliations in the form of bombardments and ground offensives in Gaza have resulted in significant casualties, with the Palestinian health ministry reporting over 230 deaths in the West Bank since Oct. 7.
As tensions continue to escalate, the international community is closely monitoring the situation, emphasizing the need for a peaceful resolution to prevent further loss of life in this deeply conflicted region.
