Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian During West Bank Raid
A young Palestinian man has been killed as clashes broke out between Israeli forces and Palestinian youths in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
The Israeli forces stormed the Qaddura Refugee Camp in central Ramallah in the early hours of Monday and fired tear gas and live ammunition at youths there, al-Aqsa satellite television said.
The TV channel quoted Palestinian sources as saying that the victim was shot dead by Israeli forces at his home in Ramallah. Photos of the young man's house were also released, showing traces of blood.
Israeli media, however, alleged that soldiers killed the Palestinian man after he opened fire on them.
According to al-Aqsa, two young Palestinian men were injured when Israeli soldiers fired live ammunition while several others suffered symptoms of tear gas inhalation.
Tensions have rocked the occupied Palestinian territories since August 2015, when Israel imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds.
Around 285 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since the beginning of October that year, when tensions escalated.
