Nablus - Ma'an - Israeli special forces shot and wounded a Palestinian man during a failed arrest raid in Al-Far'a Refugee Camp, in the northern West Bank city of Nablus on Tuesday.

According to local sources, undercover Israeli troops invaded the camp in search of a "wanted" Palestinian fighter affiliated to Islamic Jihad's armed wing, the Al-Quds Brigades.

The troops, who were riding in a Palestinian dairy truck, shot 32-year-old Umar Subeh in the stomach and "harshly" assaulted his 22-year-old disabled brother Yousif during clashes that followed the aborted raid.

The undercover forces surrounded house of 28-year-old Al-Quds Brigades member Samer Al-Ghoul, but was unable to capture him.

Failing to apprehend Al-Ghoul, a large number of uniformed Israeli soldiers invaded the camp to support the special forces, provoking clashes with stone-throwing Palestinians. Israeli troops used bullets and tear gas against the Palestinians. It was during this confrontation that Subeh was shot.
