The strengths Israelis Five Palestinians were killed in a nighttime raid on a village near the West Bank town of Tulkarem, the Palestinian Health Ministry and the Israeli army said Saturday.

The ministry claimed to have identified four of the five killed during the raid on Deir al-Ghusun. Israeli forces took away some of the bodies, according to the official Palestinian news agency Wafa and a Reuters reporter at the scene.

The Israeli military stated that an officer from a special police unit was injured in the operation and hospitalized. Israeli forces responded to the fire with live ammunition and shoulder-fired projectiles.

According to the Reuters news agency, the operation was the latest in a series of clashes in the West Bank between Israeli and Palestinian forces, which have been intensifying for more than two years, but which have increased in intensity since the Hamas attack against Israel in October.

More than 400 Palestinians killed

According to Palestinian Health Ministry records, 492 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces or Jewish settlers in the West Bank or East Jerusalem since October 7. Many were armed combatants, but young stone-throwers and uninvolved civilians have also died.

The Palestinians want the West Bank and Gaza, which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war, as the nucleus of an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

U.S.-backed talks to reach a deal between Israel and the Palestinians have been stalled for a decade, but the Gaza war has increased pressure to resume efforts toward a two-state solution.

More than 34,000 Palestinians have been killed in the seven-month Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip, according to health officials in the Hamas-ruled enclave.
