Israeli occupation troops on Friday afternoon shot dead three Palestinians in an operation in the West Bank city of Nablus.
Witnesses said the three Palestinians were sheltering in a small rooftop room of Rafidya hospital in Nablus. Soldiers shot at the room, killing the three. They said Israeli soldiers were surrounding the hospital.
Israeli security sources said soldiers shot at armed Palestinians wanted by Israel for their involvement in recent attacks against Israelis.
Palestinian sources identified the three men as members of Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. (Albawaba.com)
