Continuing their rapid escalation in the city and region of Jenin, Israeli forces killed three men in a targeted assassination as the three men were driving in a car Thursday morning in the town of Jaba, south of Jenin.

The attack follows a massive invasion of Jenin and Jenin refugee camp the previous day, during which Israeli troops killed six Palestinian men and wounded 26 Palestinian civilians using sharpshooters on rooftops and aerial bombardment. No Israelis were wounded.

A seventh Palestinian died of his wounds on Thursday after having been wounded during the Wednesday invasion.

Israeli undercover special forces executed the three young men, Thursday morning, shooting them inside their vehicle in an extrajudicial assassination, at the entrance to the town of Jaba, south of Jenin.

Those killed were identified as Sufian Adnan Ismail Fakhouri, 26 years old, Nayef Ahmad Yusef Malaysha, 25 years old, and Ahmad Mohammad Dheeb Fashafsha, 22 years old.

The secretary of the “Fateh” movement in Jaba’, Jawad Khaliliya, told the Palestinian Wafa News Agency that Israeli special forces infiltrated the town and fired from point-zero range at a Hyundai vehicle in the Al-Fwara area with three young men inside, killing the young men.

Khaliliya added that immediately following the assassination, large forces of the Israeli occupation army stormed the town, deployed snipers on the rooftops, surrounded the house of Bahaa Fayez Salatmeh, for more than two hours, abducted him and completely destroyed the contents of his house.

With the rise of the three young men in Jaba, the death toll since the beginning of this year has risen to 77 Palestinians, including 13 children and a woman, killed by Israeli forces and paramilitary colonial settlers.

12 Israelis were killed by Palestinian fighters and unknown assailants during that same time period.

Three Palestinians were killed on Thursday in an exchange of fire with Israeli border police near the West Bank city of Jenin, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported.

According to reports, an Israeli border police unit was operating in the Palestinian village of Jaba' near Jenin when it was shot at by a nearby car. The soldiers returned fire, killing three and wounding one who was later transported to a nearby hospital. In the car, the soldiers found two rifles, a pistol and explosive charges.

According to the Israeli Border Police, two of the casualties, Ahmad Fashafsha (22) and Ismail Fakhoury (26) were Islamic Jihad operatives. The third causality, Nayef Malayshah (25), was identified as a "militant activist." Islamic Jihad later claimed all three men as part of its Jaba' Brigade, and said that they had regularly fired at Israeli forces.

On Tuesday, six Palestinians were killed and 26 were wounded, three of them seriously, during a raid carried out by Israeli forces in Jenin, in an attempt to capture the gunman who killed two Israelis in late February. On Thursday morning, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported that a 14-year-old boy who was wounded, Walid Nasser, succumbed to his wounds.

According to the IDF and Palestinian sources, one of the dead is 49-year-old Hamas operative Abdul Fattah Hussein Khrousheh – the suspected murderer of 21-year-old Hallel and 19-year-old Yagel Yaniv in the West Bank town of Hawara on February 26.
