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

Amjad Odeh, 37, died in what Palestinian officials described as an exchange of fire between the security forces and a wanted man in Askar refugee camp.

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.

In Al-Fara refugee camp, angry residents managed to shut off the main street connecting Nablus and Tubas and set tires on fire to protest the shooting.
