Two Palestinian children and a teenager were killed by Israeli forces on Thursday morning during military raids in various cities throughout the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a brief statement on Thursday that three Palestinians, including two children, were killed by Israeli forces overnight Thursday.

The ministry identified the victims as 14-year-old Hamdan Omar Hamdan, 14-year-old Ayham Mahmoud Al-Shafei, and 19-year-old Qusai Mazioun Qaraan.

These killings raise the total number of Palestinians killed in the occupied West Bank since October 7 to 132, according to the ministry.


A 14-year-old Palestinian child, who was injured earlier this week by Israeli army gunfire in the Nablus-area village of Zawata, has died of his wounds, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

Hamdan Omar Hamdan succumbed to the wounds he sustained on Monday by Israeli army gunfire. Hamdan was shot in the head while he was in a car with his father.


Israeli occupation forces raided on Thursday morning the city of al-Bireh, near Ramallah, where they shot and killed two people and injured others, according to local sources and the Ministry of Health.

They said an undercover army unit broke into Nablus Road in al-Bireh, followed later by army jeeps while shooting and firing gas canisters resulting in one person being shot in the head.

The victim, who was identified as 14-years old Ayham Mahmoud Shafiee, later succumbed to his wounds.


A Palestinian teenager was killed Thursday morning by Israeli army bullets during a raid into the northern West Bank city of Qalqilya, according to the health ministry.

Other Palestinians were reportedly injured. According to the Palestinian news agency WAFA, one was shot in the chest and is reported to be in critical condition.
