The Palestinenet News website reported on Wednesday that Ehad Abu
Salha, 18, from Sheikh Muslim neighborhood in Nablus, in the northern
part of the west Bank, died in an explosion that took place in the area
after midnight.

Residents of the neighborhood stated that a huge explosion rocked the area shortly after midnight, and that the explosion was caused by an explosive charge. 

Medical sources at Rafidia Hospital in Nablus reported that the body of the youth was severely mutilated as a result of the blast.

A resident of the neighborhood said that fighters have been placing explosive charges at the entrance of the neighborhood on daily basis in an attempt to prevent the Israeli army from invading it since several fighters are living in that area.

The Al Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of Fateh movement, said that Abu Salha is one of its members and that its fighters destroyed two Israeli vehicles while invading the area on Tuesday.
