Many prophets were killed, amongst the known prophets were Armiya (as), Yahya (as) who were killed by the Yahud.
This disgraceful and evil act is mention in the Quran,
“Humiliation and abasement were pitched upon them, and they incurred the Anger of Allah; because they disbelieved His signs and slew His Prophets unjustly; because they disobeyed and were transgressors.”
(Surah Number: 2, Ayah Number: 61)
“To Moses We gave the Book and after him We sent other Messengers. We gave (Prophet) Jesus, the son of Mary, veritable signs, and supported him with the Spirit of Purity (Gabriel). Will you then become proud whenever any Messenger comes to you with that which does not suit your fancies, and you belied some (Prophet Jesus) and killed others!”
(Surah Number: 2, Ayah Number: 87)
In a Hadith it is mentioned,
Abu Ubaidah ibnul Jarrah (RA) reports that Rasulullah (sallahu alaihi wa sallam) said that the Banu Israil killed in one day, 43 Prophets and 170 pious men who commanded them to do good. (Tafsir ibne Kathir vol.1 pg. 274).
And ALLAH TAA`LA knows Best.
