PRC claims to have killed Israeli soldier near Nablus

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades said on Saturday that its fighters shot and killed an Israeli soldier near Nablus in the northern West Bank.

In a statement released from Gaza, the group said that fighters with the group opened fire at an Israeli military jeep "from a close distance at the Itamar settlement east of Nablus" at around 1:10 a.m.

"Our fighters confirmed that they killed an Israeli soldier in the jeep before they withdrew unharmed," the statement added.

The group warned that military operations would continue in the West Bank in response to the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Also on Saturday morning, militants affiliated with the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade claimed responsibility for opening fire on Qalandia checkpoint and injuring Israeli soldiers during a gun battle there.

Tensions have been high in the West Bank as tens of thousands have protested the Israeli assault on Gaza that has killed more than 940 Gazans in the last 18 days.

Israeli forces have killed 12 Palestinians in protests in the last two weeks, including nine in a twenty-four hour period ending early Saturday.
