A special unit of the Israeli army shot and killed three Palestinian men on Saturday, the first day of the holy month of Ramadan, in the outskirts of the town of Arraba, near Jenin, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
Security sources told WAFA that after the shooting, a large unit raided and sealed off the area, preventing Palestinian ambulances from reaching the three men.
Its 3am in Palestine. We just woke up for #Ramadan first Suhoor meal… and to news of yet another massacre in the occupied West Bank!

The Israeli army then took away the bodies after refusing to turn them over to the Palestinian Red Crescent. Israeli soldiers also took away the car where the tree Palestinians were traveling, which reports said was riddled with bullet holes.
