Two Palestinians were killed by the Israeli occupation army bullets in the West Bank, while the confrontations renewed in the early hours of Sunday dawn in separate areas, after violent clashes that took place on Saturday, which also resulted in the wounding of hundreds of Palestinians.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health said - in a statement - that a Palestinian died of being seriously wounded by live bullets in the heart of Tulkarm in the northern West Bank, while another was killed while driving his car in the Al-Fawwar refugee camp in Hebron.
The official Palestinian News Agency (WAFA) reported that the Israeli forces detained the injured person and prevented the Palestinian Red Crescent staff from providing the necessary aid to him, and left him bleeding for a period before allowing medical personnel to reach him after his death.
For its part, the Israeli army said that "a Palestinian vehicle attempted to run over soldiers at a military checkpoint, before the driver was shot and killed."

The confrontations continue
Clashes erupted in the early hours of Sunday dawn between Palestinians and the Israeli army, in separate locations in the occupied West Bank.
Eyewitnesses reported that clashes erupted at the Israeli military checkpoint near the city of Jenin (north), during which the army used live bullets and rubber-coated metal and tear gas canisters to disperse the Palestinian protesters.
Similar clashes also erupted at the entrance to the town of Azzun, east of Qalqilya, and in the town of Huwara in Nablus (north), the towns of Ras Karkar and Nabi Saleh, west of Ramallah (center), and the town of Idhna in the Hebron governorate (south).
Saturday's confrontations with the occupation forces in different areas of the West Bank were on the 73rd anniversary of the Nakba, and in solidarity with Gaza, where the aggression resulted in the injury of more than 550 Palestinians with live and rubber bullets and tear gas canisters, according to what was reported by Al-Jazeera correspondent.
The marches took place yesterday, Saturday, in several areas of the West Bank, including Nablus, Qalqilya, Tulkarm and Tubas (north), Ramallah, Jerusalem, Bethlehem (center), and Hebron (south), amid a state of ferment in light of the Israeli attacks on Gaza, Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Armed clashes took place between Palestinians and the Israeli occupation forces at Qalandia military checkpoint north of occupied Jerusalem, in light of the exchange of missile strikes between the Palestinian resistance factions and the Israeli army.
Al-Jazeera correspondent Guevara Al-Badiri quoted Israeli sources as saying that armed men fired live bullets intensively at the occupation forces at Qalandia checkpoint, and indicated that Israeli settlers attacked a number of Palestinian homes in the village of Asira al-Qibli, south of Nablus, and tried to burn them.
On Friday, 11 Palestinians were killed and dozens were wounded during clashes that included all West Bank cities in protest against the Israeli "aggression" on Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.
The situation in the Palestinian territories has exploded since April 13, as a result of brutal attacks committed by the Israeli police and settlers in Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its environs, and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, following Israeli efforts to evacuate 12 Palestinian homes and hand them over to settlers.
