BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The UK Foreign Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt expressed concern on Tuesday over the killing of two Palestinians by Israeli forces in Qalandiya refugee camp.

"The circumstances leading to these two deaths needs to be fully investigated," Burt said.

"I urge both sides to exercise restraint and avoid inflammatory actions such as this."

The incident took place after Israeli soldiers entered the camp before dawn on Monday and clashes broke out, Palestinian officials said.

The European Union has also urged Israel to carry out an inquiry into the killings.
