NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian security forces killed a man in a Nablus-area refugee camp late Tuesday, officials and witnesses said.

Odeh was taken to Rafidia hospital were he was pronounced dead. There were reports of other injuries.

Witnesses told Ma’an that dozens of Palestinians attacked security forces with rocks after the incident.
