Israeli army kills four militants in West Bank


Several armed militants have been killed in an Israeli military operation in Jenin in the West Bank, Israeli and Palestinian media reported on Friday.

The Health Ministry in Ramallah said four Palestinians were killed. The Israeli military confirmed the operation in the city, in which soldiers exchanged fire with militants surrounded in a building.

Jenin is seen as a stronghold of Palestinian militants and is the scene of frequent raids by Israeli forces.

According to Palestinian reports, it was a drone that fired a missile at the house.

According to the Ministry of Health, the victims were between 20 and 30 years old.

The Palestinian news agency WAFA reported other clashes in Jenin. According to the ministry, a 54-year-old man was shot dead during another raid by Israeli forces in the city. The Israeli army did not initially comment on the incident.

The situation in the West Bank has deteriorated dramatically since the start of the war in Gaza, which broke out in response to the Hamas massacre in southern Israel on October 7.

Health officials say 543 Palestinians have since been killed in Israeli military operations, confrontations or as a result of their own attacks in the West Bank.

During this period, settler violence against Palestinians also increased again.
