Five Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in four separate incidents in the occupied West Bank, international media reported.

According to BBC News, three men, including two brothers in their 20s, were shot dead during overnight clashes with Israeli troops near the cities of Ramallah and Hebron.

The report quoting Israeli military officials said the fourth was shot after he rammed his car into a forces personnel, seriously injuring her.

The fifth reportedly died after fresh clashes near Ramallah in the evening, report said.

As violence continues in West bank, the UN has warned that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is “again reaching a boiling point”.

Israeli forces are carrying 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, BBC reported.
