HEBRON, Palestine, Musa Abu Doss, 25, was reportedly killed today morning by the Israeli occupation forces in Singer neighborhood of Doura town in Hebron, Palestinian medical sources said.

Eyewitnesses told WAFA News Agency that an Israeli troop cordoned off a Palestinian three-storey house owned by Ahemd Fayadd Nassar in the early morning of Tuesday,

They went onto saying that the Israeli troops opened a burst of fire towards the besieged house, resulting in the killing of Doss, whose body was held and evacuated to unknown place by the Israeli forces.

Earlier, the Israeli soldiers forced the house’s dwellers out in the open air after having besieged the targeted house with scores of tanks and military jeeps and declaring the area as a “military zone” , eyewitnesses confirmed.

In the meantime, Israeli troops arrested Tuesday two Palestinian civilians in the West Bank city of Nablus, local sources said.

The sources added that a contingent of the Israeli occupation forces stormed the Haifa street, under a barrage of heavy gun fire and broke into the house of Iyad Abu Zahra, arresting Iyad and his brother.
