Israeli forces shoot, kill Palestinian near Ramallah


RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man in al-Amari refugee camp near Ramallah overnight, locals told Ma'an.



Locals said 22-year-old Issa Salim al-Qatari was shot by Israeli troops in the chest around 5:00 a.m. and taken by car to Ramallah medical complex where medics pronounced him dead.

The victim was shot during clashes between young Palestinian men and Israeli soldiers, who stormed al-Amari camp and detained resident Alaa Jalayta from his home, the sources said.

Protesters "showered the invading forces with stones, and soldiers responded with live ammunition, injuring a number of other Palestinians," one witness said.

Al-Qatari was preparing for his wedding which was to take place next week, the sources added.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said an Israeli army force entered al-Amari refugee camp overnight to arrest a "Hamas operative," and was met with Palestinian "rioters." more
