According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, a 45-year-old man was killed in Jenin, northern West Bank, and another person was killed in Dheisheh refugee camp near Bethlehem further south.

The Red Crescent said that overall, Israeli forces carried out at least five overnight operations in towns and refugee camps across the West Bank.

Israeli army raids on the West Bank have surged since the war on Gaza started, as has Israeli settler terrorism against Palestinians.

The Palestinian health ministry says Israeli forces and terrorist settlers have killed more than 200 Palestinians in the West Bank since the start of the war.

In the northern West Bank on Saturday, five fighters from the Fatah movement were killed in a rare Israeli airstrike on the Balata refugee camp, the Palestinian Red Crescent and Fatah sources said.

On Sunday, an AFP photographer saw Israeli troops searching Nablus's Balata camp.
