Jenin - Ma'an - Two senior leaders of Islamic Jihad's Al-Quds Brigades were killed on Thursday morning after Israeli forces besieged them in a house under construction in the northern West Bank town of Qabatia, south of Jenin.

Sources within Al-Quds Brigades identified the victims as 26-year-old Bilal Kameel and 19-year-old Iz Addin 'Uwaidat. According to the Islamic Jihad sources Kameel was one of the senior Islamic Jihad leaders in the northern West Bank.

The operation began at 2:30 am when an Israeli force accompanied by two bulldozers stormed the eastern neighborhood of Qabatia and besieged a house under construction where the two activists were hiding. The troops called them through loudspeakers asking them to surrender, but they refused and clashed with the Israeli soldiers who fired missiles at the house killing both activists.
