UPDATE: The Israeli army radio announced that one of the wounded Israeli soldiers mentioned in the article below has been killed.

Twelve Palestinians were killed in an Israeli raid in the Nur Shams refugee camp near the northern West Bank city of Tulkarm.

Eyewitnesses said that the Israeli army had raided the camp at dawn and that ongoing fighting continued between Palestinian fighters and invading Israeli soldiers.

Early reports say that the Israeli military has used unmanned drones while attacking the camp and that a fortified military bulldozer was also brought in, destroying much of Nur Sham’s infrastructure. 

For its part, Al-Quds Brigades issued a statement saying that it had detonated an explosive device in a group of advancing Israeli soldiers and military vehicles:

“We have carried out an ambush against (Israeli) occupation soldiers and we were able to injure and kill all of its members.”

Israeli media reports say that ten of its soldiers were wounded and one of those injured is in a serious condition. 

Since the start of the war between the Israeli army and Palestinian Resistance, Israel has detained over 750 Palestinians, mostly Hamas activists and freed political prisoners, Aljazeera net reported. 

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Club said that most of those detained were in the Hebron and Ramallah areas.

Additionally, over 80 Palestinians were killed and hundreds more wounded by Israeli army gunfire in the occupied West Bank since October 7.
