A young Palestinian man was killed by Israeli troops in a refugee camp north of the occupied West Bank.

Bakir Hashash, 21, was shot in the head of the Balata refugee camp after Israeli troops attacked the Balata refugee camp in Nables early Thursday.

Amin Abu Bilde, a Palestinian journalist evacuating to a refugee camp, said Palestinian resistance fighters fired weapons in the assault and Bakir Hashash was seriously injured in the subsequent conflict.

Israeli troops said the army shot an armed man who fired at soldiers during surgery to arrest a wanted suspect in Narus.

“The casualties have been identified,” the military said, adding that there were no casualties in the army.

After being taken to the Raffidia Surgical Hospital, the young Palestinian succumbed to his wounds despite all efforts.

Israeli troops detained another Palestinian while withdrawing from the camp, Virde added.

Arrest campaign

Israeli troops frequently carry out widespread arrest campaigns on the occupied west bank and in occupied East Jerusalem under the pretext of searching for “desired” Palestinians.

In response to the Israeli assault, Palestinian youth often throw stones and Molotov cocktails, and Israeli troops use metal bullets and tear gas containers to disperse them.

Israel has illegally occupied its territory since the Six-Day War in 1967.

With the exception of the annexed East Jerusalem, approximately 475,000 Israelis, along with more than 2.8 million Palestinians, live in occupied west bank settlements that are considered illegal under international law.
