Under-cover forces of the Israeli army shot and killed, on Monday
evening, one resident in Tulkarem, in the northern part of the West
Bank. One resident was injured in the attack and at least ten residents
were taken prisoner.
The Palestine News Network reported that resident Mahmoud Abdul-Al, 22, was killed by the under-cover troops who took his body to the District Coordination Office, west of Tulkarem.
The army informed the Palestinian coordination office that soldiers have the body of Abdul-Al, and then a Red Crescent ambulance headed to the Israeli Coordination Office and took the body to Thabit Hospital in the city.
Abdul-Al was killed in what was described as a “massive invasion” to Jafa Street, in the city, where the under-cover forces, that was followed later on by several armored jeeps, broke into a local Coffee-Shop and assassinated in an attempt to abduct a resistance fighter.
Local sources reported that Abdul-Al was shot and killed as the forces attempted to assassinate Adnan Ya'ish, member of the Al Aqsa brigades, the armed wing of Fateh, who was at the Coffee-Shop.
Ya'ish was injured in his legs and was taken prisoner by the army.
Palestinian security sources reported that Abdul-Al is from the Gaza Strip, and living in Tulkarem. He works with car parts and is not affiliated with any resistance group.
Also, one child identified as Mojahid Adnan Al Shaweesh, 16, was moderately injured in his head and was transferred to a local hospital. Ten residents were taken prisoner and were moved to an unknown destination.
Following the attack, dozens of youth clashed with the invading forces and hurled stones at them; soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition and concussion grenades before closing Abdul-Nasser Square in the city.
