Three Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli occupation forces Sunday morning near the Israeli military checkpoint of Sarra, to the southwest of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
The Ministry said it was informed by the Palestinian Military Liaison that the Israeli occupation army fired at four Palestinians while inside their vehicle at the checkpoint, killing them in a targeted assassination. The three Palestinian martyrs are yet to be identified.
Witnesses in a village adjacent to the checkpoint told reporters that shortly after their tragic shooting, Israeli occupation soldiers stormed shops and sized the recordings of surveillance cameras to keep their crime untold, Palestine news agency (WAFA) reported.
The latest Israeli crime brings up the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli occupation forces since the beginning of the year to 84, including 15 children and an elderly woman, according to the Ministry.
