RAMALLAH, West Bank — Israeli forces killed at least four Palestinians during a raid in the occupied West Bank on Sunday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, in a statement, said Israeli forces had mounted an operation against “Hamas terrorists who were about to carry out imminent terrorist attacks”.
