New Palestinian armed groups emerge in West Bank

Israel’s security establishment is increasingly concerned about the emergence of new armed Palestinian groups in the West Bank committing shooting attacks against Israeli checkpoints and settlements.

As the Israeli military continues its operations against these groups, specifically the Lions’ Den in the city of Nablus, these factions are gaining public support and luring more young Palestinians into their ranks.
