New “Israeli” raids on occupied West Bank turn deadly

Three Palestinians were killed and some 40 people suffered injuries as “Israeli” troops raided a house in the city of Nablus.


Three Palestinians have been killed in an “Israeli” raid on the city of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry has said, two days after deadly “Israeli” air strikes on Gaza was halted by a truce.

A statement by the ministry said 40 other people were wounded in Tuesday's raid, with four of them suffering serious injuries.

The “Israeli” army said Ibrahim al Nabulsi, a member of Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, was killed in the raid. Another person staying in the house was among the fatalities.

"[Israeli] army and special forces are surrounding the house of a wanted man in Nablus. There is exchange of fire," the “Israel's” military said in a statement.

“Israeli” forces said they launched a shoulder-fired missile at the house and detained four suspects in the raid. 

The “Israeli” army accuses al Nabulsi of carrying out attacks against its forces in Nablus.

Deadly raid

Heavy gunfire was heard as dozens of “Israeli” military vehicles brought traffic in one of the occupied West Bank's largest cities to a standstill. 

“Israeli” security forces have conducted frequent operations in the occupied West Bank in recent months, focusing on operatives from the Islamic Jihad group.

On Friday, “Israel” launched what it called a "pre-emptive" aerial and artillery bombardment of Islamic Jihad positions in besieged Gaza, leading the armed group there to fire rockets in retaliation.

An Egypt-brokered ceasefire reached on Sunday ended three days of “Israeli” bombardment that killed 46 Palestinians — 16 of them children — and wounded 360, according to Gaza's health ministry.
