Israeli occupation forces killed three Palestinians on Tuesday as they raided Al-Far’a camp and the nearby city of Tubas in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian and Israeli media reported.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society said Israeli forces shot dead one man in Tubas, while two more were martyred, along with three injured, in the Far’a camp.

One of the three Palestinians martyred was identified as Ahmed Daraghmeh, a commander of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad-affiliated Tubas Battalion resistance group.

According to Palestinian media, the other two Palestinians martyred in the clashes were Osama Jabr Al-Zalat and Muhammad Samih Bayadsa, both from El Far'a.

Intense fighting initially erupted in Al-Far’a between IOF and Palestinian youths.

Later, IOF entered Tubas, located north of the refugee camp, leading to further clashes during which Daraghmeh was martyred.

Israeli media reported that an occupation soldier was wounded in the clashes in Tubas.

Elsewhere in Nablus, the Israeli occupation military injured a Palestinian and arrested four Palestinians in Nablus governorate, the Wafa news agency reported.

Two men were arrested in the northern mountain area of the city of Nablus, while a third man was arrested on University Street in Nablus.

A fourth man was arrested in the village of Beit Furik, south of Nablus.

Israeli forces also shot a man in the chest at the Beit Furik checkpoint, Wafa reported.

IOF also stormed the Jazalone camp, north of the city of Ramallah, and arrested an unspecified number of men.

Meanwhile, protests are expected across the occupied West Bank on Tuesday calling for an end to Israeli brutal war on Gaza and for the release of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Protests were called for in Ramallah, Hebron, Nablus, Jenin, Bethlehem, Tulkarem, Tubas, Qalqilya and Jericho.

At least 410 Palestinians have been martyred in Israeli occupation army and settler attacks across the occupied West Bank since October 7.

In the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, Israeli occupation forces have arrested about 7,000 people, sometimes without charges, bringing the total number of Palestinian prisoners to nearly 10,000, adding serious overcrowding to the challenges they face.
