At least three young Palestinian men have been fatally shot as the israeli army carried out a number of overnight raids in the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian officials.
The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that israeli military forces stormed the Askar refugee camp, located on the outskirts of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, early on Sunday morning, triggering fierce confrontations with local residents.
A Palestinian protester, identified as 25-year-old Naeem Mahmoud Farran, sustained critical gunshot wounds to the chest during the clashes, while ten others were injured.
Farran later succumbed to his severe gunshot wounds at a nearby hospital.
Palestinian medical sources also said a young Palestinian man was shot dead and eleven others sustained injuries last night, when israeli soldiers raided the town of Beit Rima in the north-central West Bank.
The incursion led to skirmishes between locals and Israeli soldiers, who fired live bullets to disperse the protesting crowd and clear their way into the town.
