Nablus - Ma'an - Israeli special forces assassinated a prominent leader in the armed wing of Fatah, the Al-Aqsa Brigades, injured a Palestinian woman and arrested two others during a raid in Balata refugee camp, near the West Bank city of Nablus on Friday morning.

The Israeli forces killed 26 year-old Al-Aqsa Brigades fighter Hani Al-Qa'bi and seized 28-year-old Samer Abu Leil, a fighter affiliated with Islamic Jihad, who was also wounded in the attack near the old mosque in the center of the camp. 29-year-old Ruwaida Abu Leil was injured, witnesses said.

Hundreds of Palestinians took to the streets of the camp, carrying Al-Qa'bi's body, shouting nationalist slogans and calling for revenge.

The Israeli intelligent services accused Al-Qa'bi of an attempt to poison dozens of Israelis. Two Palestinians from Nablus confessed that Al-Qa'bi provided them with poison. He denied these accusations.

Separately, the Israeli forces arrested ten young men at dawn on Friday from the village of Beita south of Nablus after the Israeli raid.

On Thursday Israeli forces assassinated two Islamic Jihad fighters in the west Bank town of Qabatiya, south of Jenin.
