Israeli raids in the West Bank have been a source of tension over the past year and a half.
Since January, over 220 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers and settlers.
According to the United Nations Human Rights Council, there are approximately 5,000 Palestinians in Israeli prisons, including 160 children.
So far this year, 185 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers. Among them were 34 minors.
Israel occupied the West Bank in 1967 and has since established settlements there, which are considered violations of international law.
Israeli forces stormed dozens of houses in the cities of Ramallah, Jenin, Nablus, and Hebron.
The Israeli occupation forces also arrested 35 Palestinians in the West Bank overnight and on Tuesday morning.
Despite international criticism, Israel has maintained control over the West Bank, which it seized during the 1967 war.
Palestinian diplomats pointed out that these murders mark "the failure of the international community to provide protection to the Palestinian people."
