JENIN, Palestine (AA) - At least four Palestinians were killed early Wednesday in Israeli attacks in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

"Four citizens were killed at dawn and this morning by occupation bullets and missiles, including three martyrs in Jenin and a martyr in Qalqilya," the ministry said in a statement.

Meanwhile, eyewitnesses told Anadolu that "an Israeli force stormed the Qalqilya city and searched a number of homes, which led to the outbreak of clashes with dozens of Palestinians, during which the army used live and metal bullets."

Palestinian official television announced early Wednesday that four Palestinians were killed in an Israeli bombing in the Jenin camp in the northern West Bank, before the Health Ministry announced that their number was three, along with a fourth in Qalqilya.

Eyewitnesses told Anadolu earlier Wednesday that Israeli forces stormed the camp and deployed snipers on the rooftops of a number of homes and buildings, which led to the outbreak of clashes.

They said that there was a power outage in several neighborhoods in the city of Jenin, which coincided with the raid.

Witnesses also said the army struck a site near the camp’s cemetery with two missiles, causing injuries.

The Palestinian group Hamas’s military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, said its fighters were able to detonate an explosive device while the Israeli army was storming the camp, causing casualties.

Witnesses said the army withdrew from the camp following a military raid that lasted several hours.
