RAMALLAH, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Palestine on Sunday condemned Israeli soldiers for killing five Palestinians in two separate incidents in northern West Bank and northwest of Jerusalem.

"Palestine condemns the two awful crimes committed on Sunday morning by the Israeli occupation forces in Jenin in northern West Bank and northwest of Jerusalem," the Palestinian Authority said in a press statement.

"These crimes are a continuation of the series of the Israeli violations and field executions that had never stopped against our people," the statement said, adding that the policy would lead to "more tension and instability."

It said Israel was "directly and fully responsible" for the escalation and its consequences," calling on the international community to "hold Israel accountable" for the crimes.

On Sunday morning, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement that two Palestinians were killed and nine injured by Israeli soldiers when they stormed the village of Burqin west of Jenin.

Governor of Jenin Akram Rajoub said an Israeli army force stormed Burqin, killed one Palestinian and seized the body of another.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian liaison office with the Israeli side said Israeli soldiers killed three other Palestinians in the village of Beit Anan, northwest of Jerusalem.

Palestinian eyewitnesses in the village said that a special Israeli security force stormed the village, clashed with Palestinian gunmen and killed three, among which one was a militant member of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas).

An Israeli army spokesman said in a press statement that they killed four Hamas members in a crossfire during a unique security campaign aimed at arresting Hamas militants in several West Bank areas. Enditem
