Israeli soldiers this morning killed the commander of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Tubas in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian media reported.

The Palestinian Authority's Health Ministry announced that three Palestinians were killed during clashes at the site and the nearby Farah camp.

One of those killed was identified as 26-year-old Muhammad Daraghmeh, co-founder of the local branch of Islamic Jihad in Tubas in the northern West Bank.

The military wing of Islamic Jihad confirmed that all those killed were members of that extremist organization.

The Ministry of Health said they were killed by bullets fired in the head, chest and neck.

Violence in the West Bank has intensified since the start of the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza on October 7.

Since then, more than 400 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in the West Bank, mostly in clashes that erupt during near-daily military raids in search of suspected extremists.
