NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army announced that Ashraf Naawla, who carried out a shooting attack, was shot and killed in Askar al-Jadid refugee camp, east of Nablus City, in the northern West Bank, on predawn Thursday.

In October, Naawla had carried out a shooting attack in the Barkan industrial area, near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel, killing two Israelis and seriously injuring another.

According to a statement by the Israeli army, Naawla was found in hiding a house in the refugee camp.

Medical sources confirmed to Ma'an that Israeli forces fired dozens of live bullets inside one of the rooms of the house, where Naawla was present, in addition to a large amount of blood on the floor.

Sources added that Israeli forces prevented the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) from reaching the area and transporting the body.

The Israeli army took Naawla’s body before withdrawing from the area.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Israeli forces also detained four Palestinian youths from the same area.
