According to the official Palestinian
WAFA news agency, the fatalities occurred after the regime's forces attacked Palestinian civilians at three locations on Sunday.

The youngest victim, identified as 14-year-old Louay al-Sufi, was gunned down after Israeli forces raided the Ain Sultan refugee camp, north of the West Bank city of Ariha, also known as Jericho. The report cited medical sources as saying that the victim was shot in the chest after Israeli troops opened live fire at the camp's residents during the raid.

Israeli troops' violence also claimed
the lives of 17-year-old Suleiman Muhammad Kana'an and 16-year-old Khaled Amer Hmidat at the northern entrance to the city of al-Bireh near Ramallah. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, the former died after a direct gunshot penetrated his heart.

Hmidat was also injured by Israeli forces' live fire and was taken to hospital in critical condition, where he was pronounced dead. The regime's forces have not delivered his body to his family.

Elsewhere across the occupied territory, two Palestinian youths were killed by Israeli forces near the town of Sa'ir, northeast of the West Bank city of al-Khalil, also known as Hebron. The victims were identified as Ahmed Musa Muhammad Jabareen and Jalal Issa Mohammad Jabareen.

The occupying
regime has escalated its violent raids across the West Bank since October 7 when it started a brutal military onslaught against the besieged Gaza Strip following Operation al-Aqsa Storm by the territory's resistance movements.
Including Sunday's fatalities, nearly 350 Palestinians have been killed across the occupied territory as a result of the escalation.
On the other hand, the regime's genocidal war on Gaza has so far killed nearly 24,000 Palestinians, most of them women and children, while leaving over 60,000 others injured.
