PA security forces kill man during Hebron raid

Oct. 16, 2014 12:09 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 17, 2014 4:07 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority security forces killed a 25-year-old man in Hebron early Thursday during a raid in the southern West Bank city.

Security officials told Ma'an that clashes broke out as PA forces attempted to arrest several known outlaws who had been hiding south of Hebron in Area C.

It is unclear what the men are accused of.

The men opened fire at security forces during the raid, injuring seven security personnel, including one who is in a critical condition.

PA forces responded with live fire and critically injured Bilal al-Rajabi, who later died in hospital.

Security spokesperson Adnan al-Damiri told Ma'an that security forces arrested 21 wanted criminals in the Jabal Jawhar area and recovered several stolen vehicles.

The PA is investigating the death of al-Rajabi, he said, adding that security forces will deal forcefully with outlaws "even inside areas they think are a safe place to hide."
