    RAMALLAH (Sputnik) - Four Palestinians were injured by the Israeli army’s shelling in the West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said on Monday in a statement, obtained by Sputnik.

    "Four young Palestinian men were injured by bullets from the Israeli forces at the entrance to the Deir Abu Mash'al settlement [northwest of the city of Ramallah]," the statement said.

    One of the injured is in serious condition, according to the ministry.

    The latest surge of violence in Gaza erupted on Monday after a Hamas commander was killed in a covert Israeli operation. Since then, Gaza militants have fired at least 460 rockets at Israel, and Israeli forces have carried out airstrikes on 160 targets in Gaza.
