(CTN News) – According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, three Palestinian men were murdered in Israeli military incursions into the West Bank overnight.
This has taken the total number of Palestinians killed in the area to 114 since October 7. The Ministry reported the deaths of three men in a brief Facebook post.
Some context: Tensions in the occupied West Bank were already high before the Hamas attack, and residents have previously told CNN that they are afraid of a wave of violence from Israeli military and security forces, as well as revenge attacks by the estimated 700,000 Israeli settlers living in the area.
This year has seen an increase in the number of Palestinians murdered by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank, both terrorists and civilians, to the highest level in nearly two decades.
