Thursday morning, Israeli soldiers killed a 17-year-old youth in Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus, and injured two others after invading the camp and exchanging fire with a resistance group.

A medical source at al-Ittihad hospital in Nablus reported that Khaled Mohammad al-Maseemy, 17, died of his wounds on Thursday morning.

Ahmad Mohammad Sanakra, 18, was shot in the stomach and admitted for surgery, and Nour Fares Najim, 16, was shot in the head and is currently in a critical condition.

The two injured residents were unarmed, the Israeli army reported, and were injured during the exchange of fire which erupted in the camp after gunmen attacked and fired at six settler vehicles escorted by the army to Joseph’s Tomb, in the city.

The al-Aqsa martyrs brigades, the military wing of Fatah movement, said that al-Maseemy is one of its members and that he was wanted by Israeli security forces.

The brigades vowed revenge for the killing in a statement made by its leader in Nablus, Ala Sanakra.
