Israeli forces kill man in Jenin camp

Sept. 17, 2013 9:48 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 19, 2013 12:30 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces killed a man in Jenin refugee camp on Tuesday during an arrest raid, locals said.

Islam al-Tubasi, 22, was shot in the leg after Israeli soldiers raided his family home in Jenin refugee camp. He was arrested and taken to a hospital in Israel, where he died from his injuries, sources told Ma'an.

"Special units stormed the house after Israeli forces bombed the door and immediately went to the roof of the home where Islam sleeps. He tried to escape and they shot him and then dragged him out of the house and took him to an unknown destination," family members told Ma'an.

A large patrol of around 20 Israeli military vehicles entered the camp at dawn and raided several homes.

Clashes broke out with local residents following the shooting of al-Tubasi, with dozens of camp residents injured by stun grenades, tear gas and live fire, Wafa reported.

Israeli forces returned to the camp at around 6 a.m., leading to clashes in which several young Palestinians were shot in the lower body with live fire, witnesses said.

Salah Nael Ghazzawi, 13, was shot in the leg and taken to hospital for treatment.

Israel's army said in a statement that shots were fired at Israeli soldiers while arresting a "wanted terror activist."

"The wanted suspect was injured, evacuated by military forces for further treatment and later died of his wounds in an Israeli Hospital," the statement said.
