An Israeli counterterrorism raid on Israel's West Bank on Wednesday resulted in the deaths of 10 Palestinian men, including at least four confirmed militants, and over 100 others reportedly injured. 

The Palestinian Health Ministry said at least 102 people were wounded during the clash with Israeli soldiers in the Palestinian city of Nablus. 

Hamas, which the U.S. has designated as a foreign terrorist group, announced the deaths including the four that had the titles of "martyr fighter." 

Al-Quds Brigade, a Palestinian militant group funded largely by Iran, claimed two of the men who died were commanders. The extremist organization said the injuries and deaths occurred when Israeli forces targeted a single house.

Al-Quds and Hamas threatened to respond with force after the raid.

The Israeli Defense Forces said at least three of the militants killed had carried out shooting attacks on Israelis before. The Israeli military said it did not suffer any casualties.
