The Israeli army has shot dead two Palestinian military intelligence officers in a covert operation in the Middle East’s Zionist occupation state. The incident took place early Thursday (June 10) in the occupied West Bank town of Jenin. In addition to the two detectives, another Palestinian was killed in the operation. Al-Jazeera, a Qatar-based media outlet, quoted the Palestinian Authority as saying.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health has identified the bodies of the two slain officials, the Wafa news agency reported. One of them is Adham Yaser Alawi (23) and the other is Taysir Isa (32). The third dead was identified as Jamil al-Amuri. He was imprisoned in an Israeli prison.

Another Palestinian official, Muhammad al-Bajour, 23, was seriously wounded in the Israeli operation. He was taken to a hospital in Israel.

A video collected by the Associated Press (AP) shows Palestinian officials taking refuge in the back of a car. There were gunshots. One is heard shouting that they are exchanging fire with Israeli ‘secret’ forces.

An Al Jazeera reporter from East Jerusalem said it was a covert operation in a civilian vehicle.

He added that Israeli forces had targeted at least one member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

It is known that the name of the seriously injured Palestinian officer who was taken to the hospital is Wissam Abu Zaid. He was arrested by Israeli forces during the operation.
