Ramallah, Palestinian Territories - Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinians in a pre-dawn raid in the West Bank Sunday, the Palestinian health ministry said, as the army confirmed it carried out 'counterterrorism' activity in the occupied territory.

'Two Palestinians were killed by live Israeli bullets...' in the town of Tulkarem, the ministry said, while the army confirmed a soldier had been 'moderately injured by gunshot fragments' during clashes in the Nur Shams refugee camp near the town.

The Palestinian health ministry identified the two killed as Osaid Abu Ali, 22, and Abd al-Rahman Abu Daghash, 32.

Troops dismantled an 'operational command center' inside a building in the camp and also uncovered a large number of explosive devices, the army said in a statement.

'During the activity, suspects opened fire and hurled explosive devices at the forces who responded with live fire,' the army said.
