Two Palestinians killed in Israeli raid

Robert Serry

Two Palestinians were killed and five Israeli soldiers wounded in a raid at a Palestinian camp north of Jerusalem.

The UN Special Coordinator for Middle East Peace Process, Robert Serry, has expressed concern over the killings.

Israeli soldiers reportedly carried out the operation for security reasons, says Martin Nesirky, the Secretary-General's Spokesman.

"Mr. Serry calls upon the Israeli authorities to exercise maximum restraint and thoroughly investigate the incident. He also emphasizes the need for calm from all sides."

Meanwhile, a new UN report says Israel's restrictive zoning rules are forcing Palestinians out of the West Bank area.

The new zoning rules make it almost impossible for Palestinians to obtain building permits.
