Israeli army raid in West Bank leaves six Palestinians dead

Six Palestinians were killed on Monday during an Israeli army raid in the city of Jenin in the West Bank, according to the BBC. The raid followed a deadly attack on a nearby Israeli settlement that killed an Israeli father of 12. The Israeli military said it was searching for the attackers and weapons, and that the Palestinians killed were members of a militant group. However, the Palestinian Authority condemned what it called a “massacre” and accused Israel of using excessive force. The incident comes amid rising tensions in the region, with rocket sirens sounding in southern Israel after the deadly West Bank raid.
