Some of the bodies carried through the streets of Tulkarem were draped in the flags of the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad militant groups.

Chants of “There is no God but Allah, and the martyrs are the beloved ones of Allah,” were punctuated by the crack of gunshots.

Five of the Palestinians killed were minors, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

An Israeli border police officer was also killed in the fighting, Israeli authorities said.
