A military operation in the occupied West Bank killed three Palestinians and injured eight others early Friday, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the deaths.
According to Palestinian media, three people were killed when Israeli troops opened fire on a car in Jenin, a town in the northern West Bank.
Before the car incident, videos circulated on social media showing heavy gunfire exchanges. Residents inspected the bullet-riddled vehicle after it appeared on social media.
Israel’s military did not immediately respond, even though it frequently conducts overnight raids in Palestinian-controlled parts of the West Bank to arrest suspected militants. At least 19 Israelis were killed in a recent string of attacks in Jenin, the hometown of several Palestinian assailants.
In a spontaneous protest, angry residents carried the three bodies on stretchers through the town, chanting, “God is Great.”
