Israeli forces have killed three Palestinians, including a teenager, in separate raids across the occupied West Bank.

According to the official Palestinian Wafa news agency, the first victim was identified by the Palestinian Health Ministry as 20-year-old Aziz Abdulrahim Ekhlail.

The young man died during confrontations between Israeli forces and Palestinians in the town of Beit Ummar, north of the city of al-Khalil, also known as Hebron, in southern West Bank.

Medical sources said Ekhlail died of a critical wound he received from a shot fired by the regime's troops at his abdomen.

The ministry subsequently announced the death of another youth, whom it identified as 25-year-old Salem Nasser Hajar.

Hajar died of a headshot he had received earlier during the day while he was walking with his brother along the separation wall built by the Israeli regime west of the town of Deir al-Ghusun, north of Tulkarm. His brother was arrested by the regime's forces.
