3 Palestinians said killed in West Bank clash during IDF crackdown on terror funding

Three Palestinians have been killed overnight in clashes with IDF forces during a crackdown on terror funding in the West Bank, according to Palestinian Authority officials and Hebrew media.

Hebrew media says the raids targeted offices allegedly involved in funneling money to terror purposes in Tulkarem, Nablus, Qalqilya, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Tubas and other locations.

In Tulkarem in the northwest of the territory, troops came under attack — though none of them were hurt — and returned fire, according to the reports.

Three men were killed in that clash, the Palestinian Authority’s health ministry tells AFP, adding that several others were injured.

It identifies those killed as Ayman Ahmad Mubarak, 26, Husam Imad Daabas, 22 and Mohammed Yusif Nasrallah, 27.

According to the official Palestinian Authority news agency WAFA, the three men were killed during an Israeli raid on the town shortly after midnight.
