Ministry says three Palestinians killed in Israeli attack in West Bank

NAPLOUSE, West Bank (Reuters) – Israeli security forces killed three Palestinians in a raid in the occupied West Bank early Monday, the Palestinian health ministry said.

The IDF did not immediately release details, but according to Army Radio, hundreds of soldiers took part in the massive pre-dawn operation and exchanged fire with three armed Palestinians.

The ties of the three men killed in the Balata refugee camp in the northern West Bank city of Nablus were not immediately claimed by any group.

Palestinian Civil Affairs Minister Hussein al-Sheikh condemned the Israeli raid.
