A Palestinian resident of Nablus was killed by Israeli military fire after the military invaded the northern West Bank city late Wednesday night,Ã‚Â a Palestinian security source reported.
The source identified the victim as Mohammad Assy, 27, a member of the Islamic Jihad movement.
The raid was in retaliation to this week’sÃ‚Â Netanya suicide bombing, which left five Israelis dead, an Israeli military spokesperson said.
Soldiers surrounded a home where several members of the Islamic Jihad were hiding, according to the spokesperson.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“After surrounding the home for several hours, soldiers noticed several members attempting to escape,Ã¢â‚¬Â heÃ‚Â said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Assy was spotted by a soldier who ordered him to stop, but he didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t and the soldiers fired at him.Ã¢â‚¬Â
TenÃ‚Â Palestinian residents were also arrested overnight in Nablus, Qabatia, Aseera al-Shimaliyya, abu Dis, Hebron and al-Thaheriyya, allÃ‚Â in the West Bank.Ã‚Â
Also, one Palestinian officer, identified as Mohammad Fawzy Shihada, was killed on Wednesday after Israeli soldiers fired at a monitoring tower. Another policeman, identified as Misbah Hasan Ghanim was seriously injured.Ã‚Â
