Governor: Nablus man shot dead was killed in 'crossfire'

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A man shot dead on Tuesday was killed in the crossfire between Palestinian Authority security forces and gunmen in Askar refugee camp, the governor of Nablus said Wednesday.

"A unit of security forces was assigned to arrest a wanted man in the camp according to the law and entered his house to arrest him," Jibrin al-Bakri told Ma'an.

"Then several gunmen started shooting at the officers from a number of directions. Some children started throwing rocks at them, which led the officers to call for reinforcements."

PA forces exchanged gunfire with the gunmen before leaving the camp, having arrested their intended suspect, al-Bakri said. more
