Three Palestinian young men were shot dead yesterday evening and at dawn Sunday by Israeli soldiers in the Jordan Valley, Nablus and Ramallah.

Burhan was herding sheep in Al-Maleh area of the Jordan Valley when Israeli soldiers opened fire at him.
Medical sources said that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) refused to hand over the body of the boy to Red Crescent paramedics.
In Nablus city, the IOF killed a young man during a campaign in Al-Ein refugee camp.
