Three Palestinians were today killed and more than 40 wounded, some critical, during an Israeli army incursion into the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to medical sources.

The Ministry of Health said three Palestinians who were brought to hospital in very critical condition have died of their wounds, adding that 40 people were wounded by live bullets, some of them are in critical condition.

It identified the dead as Ibrahim Nabulsi, Islam Sabbouh, and Hussein Jamal Taha.

The injuries occurred during clashes that broke out when Israeli soldiers raided the old city of Nablus and surrounded a building, which the army later destroyed after firing missiles at it wounding or killing those who were inside.

The Israeli army said its soldiers killed two people in Nablus and that they have left the city after that.

West Bank cities today observed a commercial strike in protest against the Israeli army killing earlier in the day of three Palestinians in the northern West Bank city of Nablus and the wounding of 40 others in a pre-dawn raid of the city.

Shops shut down in Nablus, Hebron, Tulkarm, Jenin, Qalqilya, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Salfit, and Tubas.

In Ramallah, protesters marched in the city streets before going to the northern section of the city where they clashed with Israeli soldiers stationed at a checkpoint.

Clashes with soldiers were also reported in Tulkarm, Nablus and Hebron.

Several injuries were also reported in the Israeli army crackdown on these protests.

Israeli assault and killings in the northern West Bank city of Nablus and held the Israeli government responsible for its consequences.

Presidential spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, said in a statement that the Israeli occupation is getting close to an open confrontation with the entire Palestinian people through its all-out aggression that began in Jerusalem and then spread to Jenin, Gaza, and today in Nablus, which left three people dead and dozens wounded.

Abu Rudeineh said the Israeli government is not interested in achieving calm and stability, and instead it is shedding Palestinian blood and exploiting it to achieve gains in Israeli internal politics.

He criticized statements by the US delegate to the United Nations who said that Israel has the right to defend itself, stressing that such statements support the Israeli propaganda, which is rejected and unacceptable because Israel is the aggressor and it occupies the Palestinian land since 1967, as recognized by the entire world.

What is required now, he said, is to hold Israel responsible for this bloody escalation, which claimed the lives of dozens of the Palestinian people.

The presidential spokesman stressed that this aggression, if it continues, will ignite the region, and will cause devastation that no one can bear the serious consequences of.

“Jerusalem and its holy places are the basis for peace and stability for all,” he said.“Continuation of this Israeli aggression, whether through daily cold-blooded killings, settlement expansion at the expense of Palestinian land, or the continued desecration and storming of holy sites, demolishing homes, expelling residents and other Israeli measures will not make our Palestinian people surrender or accept to compromise their national principles at all costs. The international community must end its dubious silence and stand firmly against Israel's policy that violated all international laws and human rights the world calls daily to implement.”
