According to a statement from the Palestinian health ministry, three Palestinians were killed during an Israeli forces raid on the Balata refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. The incident occurred at around 1am local time on Monday, after Israeli forces blocked the entrances to the camp with bulldozers, preventing ambulances and journalists from entering. Residents reported that this was one of the largest operations in years. The three men killed were identified as Muhammad Abu Zaytoun, Fathi Abu Rizk, and Abdullah Abu Hamdan. The Israeli military has not yet confirmed the fatalities. Israel has carried out several incursions in the occupied West Bank this year, including a raid on Balata earlier this month where two Palestinians were killed. The Fatah movement claimed that the two men were members of its armed wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. Monday’s raid followed a car ramming attack near Nablus on Sunday that injured an Israeli soldier.
