Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian during Ramallah arrest raid

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers shot and killed a young Palestinian man during a dawn detention raid in Qalandiya refugee camp near Ramallah, medics said Tuesday.

Mahmoud Abdullah Udwan, 21, was shot in the head while standing on the rooftop of his family home in the camp, medics said.

He was hit as Israeli soldiers ransacked homes to make arrests at around 3 a.m.

Clashes broke out as a result of the raid, with youths throwing stones at Israeli soldiers.

President Mahmoud Abbas denounced the killing and urged the international community to provide protection for the Palestinian people, a statement from his office said.

Despite the confrontations, Israeli soldiers managed to detain 26-year-old Mujahid Hamad, who works with the Palestinian football federation as a security guard at stadiums.

Four Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers in Qalandiya refugee camp this year during arrest raids.
