Israeli forces on Monday killed three Palestinians and critically injured a forth in the city of Tulkarem in the northern occupied West Bank.
According to official Palestinian news agency Wafa, Israeli special forces soldiers covertly entered Tulkarem, stopped a Palestinian car, and opened fire on the four Palestinians inside.
The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the three Palestinians as Jihad Shihada, 24, Ezzeddine Awad, 22, and Qasim Rajab, 20.
Locals in the city mourned the three men and declared a general strike.
The Israeli Shin Bet security service claimed that the four were planning to carry out an attack and were responsible for previous shootings on behalf of the Palestinian resistance group Hamas.
At least, 155 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli forces across the West Bank since Oct. 7 when the fighting broke out between Palestinian groups and Israel in Gaza.
