The official Palestinian news agency Wafa, citing medical officials, reported that 36-year-old Abdelrahim Fayez Ghannam was critically shot in the head as Israeli soldiers raided the village of Aqabah early on Friday morning. He was pronounced dead about an hour later.
Israeli soldiers reportedly fired live ammunition and tear gas canisters. They surrounded a house belonging to a local resident, identified as Abdel Razzaq Abu Arra, before seriously damaging it with a rocket-propelled grenade. Abu Arra was arrested, along with his son.
Residents in the area said there were armed clashes with Israeli forces. Four young men sustained gunshot wounds during the confrontations.
Two of them, including Ghannam, were wounded by live ammunition, while the other two were struck by rubber-coated metal bullets.
The Israeli forces also arrested members of a family during the raid. They later released three of them but kept one in custody.
Israeli forces launch raids on various cities of the West Bank almost on a daily basis under the pretext of detaining what the regime calls “wanted” Palestinians. The raids usually lead to violent confrontations with residents.
More than 200 Palestinians have been killed this year in the occupied Palestinian territories and Gaza. The majority of these fatalities have been recorded in the West Bank.
At least 32 people have been killed in Palestinian retaliatory attacks against Israeli settlers during that time.
