Three passengers were killed when soldiers opened fire on a car on Sunday, according to an army statement.

“A short time ago, a vehicle carrying a squad of terrorists from the Jenin refugee camp was identified while on its way to carry out an attack,” it said.

According to the Quds News Network, the vehicle was hit with more than 100 bullets.

The dead included Naif Abu Tsuik, 26, who the army said was a “leading military operative” from the Jenin refugee camp.

The army said that he was “involved in military action against Israeli security forces and advancing military activity directed by terrorists in the Gaza Strip”, the coastal enclave controlled by the group Hamas.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the security forces and said Israel “will continue to act against those who seek our lives anywhere and at any time”.

Hazem Qasem, a Hamas Gaza spokesman, said the deaths would not go unpunished.

“The enemy, which assassinated three of our Palestinian people, will not escape paying the price of its crimes,” he said in a statement.

Reporting from occupied East Jerusalem, Al Jazeera’s Mohammed Jamjoom said the Palestinian health ministry confirmed the deaths in the attack south of Jenin.

“The Israeli army said it also found an M-16 [assault weapon] in the vehicle,” said Jamjoom.

“This is all adding to a lot of tension here. It comes 24 hours after an attack that occurred in Tel Aviv, in which a young Palestinian man from Jenin was shooting at people. This is adding to a lot of concern to what this could mean in the days ahead.”

Deadliest year yet

Jenin has been a flashpoint and the scene of numerous Israeli raids – many deadly – during the past few months. The largest Israeli raid of the camp in nearly 20 years took place in June, killing 12 Palestinians and forcing thousands to flee their homes.

For the past year and a half, the occupied West Bank has been raging with a spiral of violence.

On Saturday, August 5, Kamel Abu Bakr, from Jenin, opened fire in central Tel Aviv and killed an Israeli police inspector before he was shot dead by a responding officer.

Earlier this week, a settler rampage in the occupied West Bank killed 19-year-old Palestinian Qusai Jamal Maatan, while Israeli soldiers shot dead another young Palestinian, 18-year-old Mahmoud Abu Sa’an, during one of their daily pre-dawn raids in the occupied West Bank.

More than 200 Palestinians have been killed this year in the occupied Palestinian territories and the Gaza Strip, the majority in the West Bank.

Officials have warned 2023 is on track to be the deadliest year for Palestinians in the occupied territory.
