Three Palestinians were martyred Tuesday by Israeli forces in two separate incidents in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.

Ammar Shafiq Abu Afifa was killed by “Israeli occupation forces shooting at him near the town of Beit Fajar”, the ministry said late in the afternoon.

The Israeli army did not immediately comment when asked by AFP. Afifa was a resident of the Al-Aroub refugee camp north of Hebron in the occupied West Bank, the official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.

Separately, Israeli forces martyred two Pales-tinians before dawn on Tuesday after coming under fire during an arrest raid in the northern West Bank, Israeli border police and Palestinian health authorities said.—AFP
