Palestinians say several killed in clashes across West Bank

Palestinian reports say that several people have been killed in clashes with Israeli forces across the West Bank in recent hours.

In Deir Ammar, a refugee camp northwest of Ramallah, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reports that a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed while confronting Israeli forces.

In Tulkarem and the neighboring Nour Shams refugee camp, where reports indicate soldiers are carrying out a nighttime raid, a 25-year-old man died after being shot earlier in the day, the Ma’an news outlet reports. According to reports, Israel carried out a drone strike during the fighting.

Ma’an also reports that a 20-year-old man was killed by a bullet to the stomach while battling Israeli troops near Beit Ummar, outside of Hebron in the southern West Bank.

In Jenin, WAFA reports that a man injured in a drone strike during a nearly 3-day raid in the northern West Bank city earlier in the week has died of his wounds.

There is no comment from the Israeli military.

According to Ma’an, 291 Palestinian have been killed in the West Bank since October 7.
