Three Palestinians were killed in the occupied West Bank city of Tulkarem during an overnight Israeli military incursion, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry and an Israeli source.

An Israeli security representative, who spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity, said that the Israel Defense Forces used live fire and killed three “terrorists” who “planted explosive devices” in the area. 

The Palestinian Health Ministry said three Palestinians were shot by “occupation fire” in Tulkarem early Thursday morning, and named the victims as Ahmed Mubarak, 26, Hossam Imad Dabas, 22, and Muhammad Youssef Nasrallah, 27. 

Residents in Tulkarem told CNN that Israeli snipers were on top of residential buildings in the city during the incursion. 

The Israeli security source told CNN that Israeli troops also opened fire on other “terrorists” in the area and “hits were identified.” Two wanted suspects were also apprehended overnight, the source said. 

According to eyewitnesses and video shared on social media, the Israeli military also carried out military incursions into other cities and towns in the occupied West Bank overnight, including Nablus, Tubas, Qalqilya, Bethlehem, Burqeen south of Jenin and other areas in the occupied West Bank.
