Israeli troops kill 4 Palestinians in West Bank

Israeli security forces killed four Palestinians in gun battles during raids on Sunday against one of the group's cells in the occupied West Bank, an Israeli military spokesperson said.

Sunday's violence was the deadliest between Israeli troops and Palestinian militants in the occupied West Bank in recent weeks and came amid heightened tensions following this year's 11-day war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said a Palestinian was shot dead in Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, and three others were killed in Biddu, north of Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said in a statement that Israeli security forces in the West Bank operated against Hamas operatives 'œthat were about to execute terror attacks in the very immediate future.'

The Israeli military said that troops involved in arrests in the West Bank came under attack as Palestinian gunmen fired on soldiers. It declined to provide further information.
