The Palestinian Red Crescent announced the martyrdom of two Palestinians on Friday morning, stating that their bodies were recovered from a house invaded and Israeli occupation forces in the city of Nablus in the northern West Bank.
The Red Crescent added that "two young men were also injured," as a result of the aggression, noting that they were transferred to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus.

Local sources reported that a special unit of the IOF besieged a house in the old town of Nablus demanding that a young Palestinian surrender himself, which led to confrontations between Resistance fighters and the force.
Palestinian resistance fighters confronted the occupation forces that infiltrated Nablus with gunfire and locally-made explosive devices, as the occupation forces called in reinforcements.
Furthermore, reports indicate that a highly explosive device was used by the Resistance to target an armored vehicle of the Israeli convoy.

Earlier in the day activists shared a video on social media which showed IOF transferring a Palestinian, identified as, Nasser Al-Kharaz, from Nablus, as they blindfolded him and forced him into an armored vehicle at dawn.
A few days ago, settlers attacked a house in Nablus under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces.
Palestinians continue to resist the incursions of the occupation forces into the city, which often forces the latter to retreat in most cases.
"Israel" has increased its aggression against the West Bank in the past month, as it launched a wide-scale military campaign against Jenin last on Monday, where it was eventually defeated by Resistance fighters namely those of the Jenin Brigade an affiliate of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The campaign has also coincided with raids on different Palestinian cities and towns including Salwan, Nablus, and Ramallah.
