RAMALLAH, West Bank – One Palestinian was shot to death and three others wounded by Israeli soldiers Tuesday in the northern West Bank city of Jenin, according to a Palestinian official.
The Associated Press quoted Israeli army spokesman Peter Lerner saying that the soldiers fired after they came under fire during a raid in Jenin. He said that two soldiers were wounded when Palestinians attacked with gunfire, improvised explosives and rocks.
Palestinians said residents confronted the army unit when it raided the camp in an attempt to make arrests. Medics at a Jenin hospital said Lahlouh was brought in with a gunshot to the chest and was pronounced dead on arrival.
