Nine Palestinians killed by Israelis in the occupied West Bank
NINE Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and at least 20 others wounded today during a raid in the West Bank.
The latest surge of violence against Palestinians was the heaviest death toll in years in the occupied territory.
A gun battle broke out when the Israeli military conducted a daytime operation in the Jenin refugee camp that it said had been aimed at preventing an imminent attack on Israelis.
Israeli violence has intensified this month after the country’s new far-right government took office and pledged to take a hard line against the Palestinians.
