Israeli settlers and the regime's troops have killed at least three more Palestinian men during separate attacks across the occupied West Bank.

In the first incident on Saturday, Israeli settlers, who were protected by the regime's forces, carried out a terrorist attack against the town of Qarawat Bani Hassan in northwestern West Bank, the official Palestinian Wafa news agency reported.

The settlers fired live ammunition at a Palestinian man identified as 38-year-old father of six children Ahmed Mustafa Assi.

Assi was then left bleeding on the ground while Israeli forces accompanying settlers did not allow medical teams or local Palestinians to reach him.

Later on Saturday, another Palestinian succumbed to injuries he had sustained during an attack by Israeli forces near the town of Tell, in the northern West Bank province of Nablus.

According to Wafa news agency, ambulances were denied access to the wounded Palestinian man, whose identity remains unknown, before he was apprehended by the Israeli occupation forces. Soon after he was arrested, the Palestinian man was pronounced dead because of his serious injuries.

The third Palestinian was killed early Sunday by the Israeli forces' live fire during a violent raid in the city of Qalqilyah.

Local sources reported that the 21-year-old man, whose identity has not been announced yet, lost his life after Israeli forces started to fire indiscriminately at civilians while conducting violent raids on their homes.

The Palestinian man was hit with live fire as he was heading to his workplace at a bakery.

Israel has ramped up its aggression against Palestinians across the West Bank since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war against the Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of Palestinians have been killed and thousands of others injured by Israeli settlers or troops across the occupied territory since the onset of the war.

The latest of the Israeli attacks featured an extensive raid targeting the city of Jenin and its refugee camp in the north of the West Bank, during which two Palestinian children were shot dead by the regime's forces.
