Four Palestinians reported killed in northern West Bank raids

Four Palestinians were killed and at least 12 more injured as Israeli forces raided West Bank cities overnight, the official Palestinian Wafa news agency reports.

Three of the deaths occurred in the Jenin refugee camp, where the Palestinian Islamic Jihad says its members clashed with troops who entered with bulldozers.

Ayser Mohammad Al-Amer, a local field commander for the terror group was killed, PIJ says.

A second man, Abdullah Basam Abu Al-Haija, was also shot to death, and Palestinians found a third fatality, Jawad Al-Turki, after troops pulled out of the city, Wafa reports.

In Qalqilya, Qassam Abdel Hafez, who had spent time in Israeli prison, was reportedly shot to death. The circumstances of the shooting were unclear.

According to WAFA, four people were also shot and injured during a raid in Nablus.

The three northern West Bank cities, where terror groups have managed to challenge Palestinian Authority control, have been the focus of Israeli raids for over a year.

There is no immediate comment from the IDF.
