The Palestinian Red Crescent said yesterday at least 14 people have been killed in an Israeli raid on Nur Shams refugee camp in the north of the occupied West Bank.

“So far, our crews have evacuated 14 martyrs from Nur Shams camp to the hospital,” it said.

Earlier, the Israeli army said troops had killed 10 Palestinians in the raid.

AFP journalists saw bodies in the street and houses hit by blasts as Israeli drones flew overhead and armoured vehicles moved through the camp.

Since early last year, violence has flared in the West Bank, which Israel has occupied since 1967.

It has escalated further since war broke out in Gaza on October 7.

The army said that over more than 40 hours it had “eliminated 10 Palestinian fighters” and made eight arrests around Nur Shams.

It said eight soldiers and a police officer were wounded.

The Palestinian health ministry said it had confirmed 11 injured in the Israeli raid, seven of them “wounded by live gunshots”.

It said a paramedic shot while trying to get to the wounded was among them.
