According to the Palestinian health ministry, Israeli troops killed eight Palestinians in the occupied West Bank over a 24-hour period.

According to the ministry, five individuals were killed by Israeli army fire in Jenin during an invasion by a significant number of armored vehicles into the city, which was recently the site of the worst Israeli operation in the West Bank in over 20 years.

According to medical authorities, 15 individuals were injured, and witnesses said an Israeli drone carried out an air hit on Jenin’s refugee camp.

According to other witnesses, the Israeli army surrounded Jenin’s public hospital and the Ibn Sina facility on Saturday, and troops were searching ambulances.

They also reported heavy fighting with automatic weapons.

The Israeli army said it conducted “counterterrorism activities” overnight in the Jenin refugee camp, a hotbed of Palestinian armed organizations in the territory’s north.

It claimed to have apprehended the accused perpetrator of an August incident that killed two Israelis.

According to the Palestinian health ministry, a 25-year-old doctor was assassinated outside his home in Qabatiya, near Jenin, on Saturday.

According to the report, another Palestinian was slain at El-Bireh, near Ramallah, and another during an Israeli army raid on a community south of Nablus.

The West Bank has seen an increase in violence since Hamas launched a cross-border onslaught on Israel on October 7, killing 1,200 people, the majority of them were civilians, according to Israeli authorities.

According to the Hamas administration, Israel has subsequently reacted with a bombing and land campaign in Gaza, killing nearly 15,000 people, mostly civilians.

According to the Palestinian health ministry, around 230 Palestinians in the West Bank had been slain by Israeli settlers and soldiers during the same time period.
