Three Palestinian young men were martyred at dawn Thursday after the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed Tulkarem City and opened fire at local residents.

The martyrs were identified as Ayman Mubarak, 26, Husam Babas, 22, and Mohamed Nasrallah, 27, according to the Palestinian health ministry.

Local sources said that the young men were killed when Israeli soldiers started firing live ammunition randomly and intensively at local residents and every moving object in the city’s streets.

The sources added that the IOF stormed different neighborhoods of Tulkarem City and the nearby towns of Deir al-Ghusun and Attil and deployed snipers on rooftops of some tall buildings in the city.

The IOF also broke into and ransacked two currency exchange facilities in Tulkarem City and Attil town.

The IOF reportedly kidnaped one young man from his home in Anabta town, east of Tulkarem. The young man works for the Gulf Exchange and Transfer Company in the city.

Meanwhile, armed clashes broke out between resistance fighters and Israeli forces in Tulkarem City.
