Israeli troops kill 4 Hamas operatives in West Bank

Israel said on Sunday that its troops killed 4 armed Hamas operatives in the West Bank during an overnight raid.

An Israeli military spokesperson said in a statement that the 4 were killed during fire exchanges in an operation to arrest suspects involved in a Hamas cell in 5 different locations in the West Bank.

The first incident took place just after midnight, as Israeli forces attacked the Jenin area in the northern West Bank.

Gunmen opened fire at troops in the town of Burqin near Jenin after the troops surrounded a building where suspects were hiding.

The soldiers replied with fire, killing one of the gunmen, according to the statement.
Near Ramallah city in the central West Bank, Israeli troops killed 3 other armed suspects during fire exchanges, the spokesperson said, adding that 3 more Palestinians were arrested.

In response to the killings, Hamas spokesman Abdel Latif al-Qanua warned in a statement the deaths of the Palestinians “will fuel the Palestinian protest and struggle by all means”.

Al-Qanua said the killings were a result of the security coordination between Israel and the Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority and the meetings between senior officials of the two sides.

“The Palestinian Authority must immediately stop the security coordination,” he said.
The West Bank was occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war.

Israel has controlled these territories ever since, in spite of international criticism.
