Jenin - Ma'an - Israeli forces questioned the family of Nizar Sawarkah, who was killed yesterday in Arrabah near Jenin after he stumbled on an unreported landmine in an abandoned Israeli military facility.

Palestinian security sources stated that several Israel military vehicles raided the Sawarkah's home town overnight and ransacked the deceased's home. The Sawarkah family was forced into the street while the house was searched, then questioned for three hours in their home. No arrests were reported.

Nineteen-year-old Nizar Sawarkah died instantly when he walked over a landmine in an abandoned Israeli military training facility as he walked towards his family fields for a day of farming.
