At Least 10 Palestinians Killed, 100 Wounded in Latest Israeli Raid

The event occurred in the West Bank

Israeli forces killed at least 10 Palestinians and wounded more than 100 Wednesday in a daytime raid in the West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinian officials said. The operation, one of the deadliest such raids in years, left Nablus' historic Old City riddled with bullets and was another escalation in counterterrorism tactics by Israel under its new far-right government.

Among those killed were a 72-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said. Palestinian armed groups said at least six of the dead were members of recently formed, loosely organized militant groups, including the Lion's Den, the Nablus Brigade and the Balata Brigade, based in a neighboring refugee camp.

The Israel Defense Forces said that two of its soldiers were injured and that three gunmen were killed, adding that the military was still looking into other Palestinian deaths and injuries.
