Israeli soldiers shoot, kill man in Jenin camp

Aug. 20, 2013 9:55 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 22, 2013 2:44 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- A man was killed and two others injured in clashes early Tuesday between locals and Israeli forces in Jenin refugee camp in the northern occupied West Bank.

Majd Mohammad Anis Lahlouh, 22, was shot directly in the heart by Israeli soldiers, witnesses said. Karim Sbeih and Alah Abu Khalifa, both in their twenties, were critically wounded.

One was shot in the bladder and the other was hit by a dumdum bullet in the chest.

Israeli forces raided the Jenin camp at 3 a.m. and broke into the home of Islamic Jihad leader Bassam al-Saedi.

Clashes broke out with camp residents, who threw empty bottles and stones at Israeli soldiers, who responded with live fire, tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets.

The body of Majd Mohammad Anis Lahlouh was transferred to Jenin hospital.

Israeli forces deployed in large numbers around the camp following the shootings, locals said.

An Israeli army spokesman said that Israeli forces entered the camp to detain a suspect in "terrorist activities."

"Shots were fired at the forces, and improvised explosives and rocks were hurled at personnel, lightly injuring two soldiers. Troops responded with live fire to eliminate the threat, initial reports show one Palestinian was killed and two injured," he added.
