Three Palestinians killed in clashes with Israeli forces in West Bank

Three Palestinian men have been killed by Israeli forces in two separate incidents in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian officials say.

Two were brothers in their 20s who were reportedly shot dead as clashes broke out with Israeli troops near Ramallah.

Israel's military said suspects threw petrol bombs at troops during an operation and that they returned fire.

The third man was shot dead after two Israeli army jeeps out on patrol broke down near Hebron.

The military said its forces were shot at and that improvised explosives were thrown at them.

Israel carries out search-and-arrest raids almost every night in the West Bank, where at least 140 Palestinians have been killed this year, most by Israeli fire.

More than 30 Israelis have also been killed amid a spate of gun and knife attacks by Palestinians.
