The Palestinian Health Ministry said the three men were killed during a raid in Balata, a refugee camp near the city of Nablus. Six people were wounded, including one who was in critical condition, the ministry said.

Israeli forces later confirmed soldiers had raided Balata; it said troops came under fire and killed three Palestinians. Three others were arrested there.

Israel has stepped up raids over the past year in response to a series of Palestinian attacks and said Monday's operations netted weapons and an explosives manufacturing operation in a home, which it detonated, according to the Associated Press.

In a separate overnight raid in the northern town of Jenin, the army said two Palestinians were shot and three were arrested when the Israeli forces came under attack. Israeli forces also raided five other locations overnight and two refugee camps — Ayola and Aqabat.

More than 250 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since the spring of 2022. About 50 people have been killed in Palestinian attacks against Israelis.
