The Israeli army has killed three Palestinian men during a large-scale raid on the Balata refugee camp in the city of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank. The West Bank has been occupied by Israel since the 1967 Six-Day War. Nearly 3 million Palestinians live there, along with about 490,000 Israelis in settlements considered to be illegal under international law. According to Palestinian health ministry, at least seven other Palestinians were injured, including four with live ammunition, and dozens of others suffered tear gas inhalation. Hundreds of Israeli soldiers and special forces participated in the raid that began at about 1am last night and continued until 5am today.
There were celebrations in the streets of Gaza on Saturday night as an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire brought hopes of peace after five days of bloodshed in which 33 Palestinians and two Israelis have died in air strikes and rocket attacks.

Israel has been conducting almost daily raids to detain Palestinians suspected of carrying out attacks on Israelis as violence increases in the occupied West Bank. In the fresh air raids, twelve people have been killed in the Gaza Strip by the Israeli military in what the military said was the targeting of members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement. The latest attacks come as tension boils between Israel and militants in Gaza, which is ruled by Hamas.

Iran has said that it has successfully tested a 2,000 km-range ballistic missile named Kheiber..or Khorramshahr. The test has come just two days after the chief of Israel’s armed forces raised the prospect of “action” against Tehran over its nuclear programme. Iran, which has one of the biggest missile programmes in the Middle East, says its weapons are capable of reaching Israel and US bases in the region. Despite opposition from the United States and European countries, Tehran has said it would further develop its “defensive” missile programme. The missile’s extended range, advanced guidance and control system, and improved structural features further solidify Iran’s status as a formidable missile power. Kheibar is one of the most advanced missiles designed by the experts of the Ministry of Defense's Aerospace Industries Organization. It is a liquid-fueled missile with a range of 2,000 kilometers and a warhead weighing 1,500 kilograms with impressive strategic and tactical capabilities.

Israeli forces are on high alert as preparations for Jerusalem Day Flag March is underway. Palestinian terrorist groups have issued threats against the Israeli flag march scheduled for tomorrow. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that the Jerusalem Day flag march will take place on its traditional route. Israel’s far-right ministers Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich are also likely to attend the march, as they have done in past years. Palestinian businesses in the area have been shut down and movement of residents have been limited in order to facilitate the procession and avoid confrontation. More than 2,000 police officers will secure the controversial march, along with more than 1,000 other security personnel who will ensure that other events in the capital throughout the day are adequately protected. The annual parade is organized by right-wing and religious organizations to commemorate Israel’s unification of Jerusalem and the capture of the Old City including the Western Wall and Temple Mount, in the 1967 Six Day War.
