Three Palestinians killed in ‘targeted assassination’ by Israeli forces

The Israeli forces fatally shot three Palestinian men near the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, in the latest round of violence against Palestinians.
The killings took place at dawn on Sunday when Israeli soldiers opened fire at four Palestinians in their vehicle near the Sarra military checkpoint, southwest of Nablus, according to the Palestinian Ma'an news agency.
The Israeli forces arrested the fourth Palestinian after the shooting near the checkpoint, Press TV reported.
The Israeli occupation fired at four Palestinians at the checkpoint, killing three of them while inside their vehicle in a “targeted assassination,” the official Wafa news agency said.
Wafa cited witnesses in the village adjacent to the checkpoint as saying that shortly after the shooting, Israeli occupation soldiers stormed shops and seized the recordings of surveillance cameras to keep their crime untold.
Meanwhile, Israeli media put the number of fatalities at three and claimed that the Palestinians killed in the violence were “armed gunmen.”
The latest Israeli crime brings up the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli occupation forces since the beginning of the year to 84, including 15 children and an elderly woman, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
The killings came two days after Israeli forces killed three Palestinians in a raid in Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank, less than 48 hours after six others were killed in another raid in the city.
