Israel Martyrs Palestinian in West Bank Raid

NABLUS: Israeli forces shot a Palestinian fighter who later died of his wounds in the West Bank Wednesday, the Palestinian health ministry said, as the army reported coming under fire during an operation.

Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, the armed wing of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas’s Fatah movement, claimed the dead man as one of its members.

In a statement, the health ministry said “Ahmed Amer Salim Abu Junaid, 21, succumbed to critical wounds, after he was shot in the head by the occupation, this morning, in Balata refugee camp in Nablus.”

Clashes erupted early on Wednesday when troops entered the camp, the army said.

“Several suspects fired at the (Israeli) forces who responded back with live fire,” the statement said, indicating that one person was struck.

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade said in a statement that it “mourns its martyr” after Abu Junaid was killed in a “confrontation with the Zionist enemy army.”

The official Palestinian news agency, Wafa, reported that undercover Israeli forces had “infiltrated the camp and surrounded a house”. It added that Israeli troops fired “live bullets, stun grenades and tear gas”.
