Al-Aqsa Brigades fighter evades capture in Jenin

April 30, 2008 11:54 A.M. (Updated: April 30, 2008 11:54 A.M.)
Jenin - Ma'an - Israeli forces raided home of wanted Palestinian activist Ammar Abu Ghalyun in Jenin refugee camp after midnight on Wednesday. Ghalyun is affiliated to Fatah's armed wing, the Al-Aqsa Brigades.

Local sources told Ma'an's reporter that undercover Israeli forces entered the camp after midnight in three Palestinian-plated cars at midnight and surrounded Abu Ghalyun's house. Then more than 20 Israeli military vehicles invaded the camp and closed all its entrances amidst heavy gunfire. They ordered Abu Ghalun through a loudspeaker to turn himself over. They recieved no answer because he was not at home.

Local sources added that after a number of unanswered calls, the soldiers broke into the house and damaged its interior as they searched for Abu Ghalun. When they failed to find him in his own home, the Israeli troops broke into neighboring houses and searched them, again in vain.

Later, Abu Ghalyun telephoned Ma'an's reporter and told him that he had been at home, but suspected that the cars that parked near his house were Israeli special forces. He claimed that he managed to flee before the rest of the Israeli troops arrived.
