Ahmad Sanaqra,24, a leader of the Al Aqsa brigades, the armed wing of Fatah was killed by the Israeli army in Balata refugee camp in the northern West Bank city of Nablus in the early hours of Friday morning.
Palestinian sources reported that at least 50 Israeli military vehicles invaded Balata camp and imposed a curfew on the area through loudspeakers. The army then besieged a home in Al Qar’an neighborhood and opened random, heavy fire on it.
In the same operation a group of resistance fighters from the Al Aqsa brigades clashed with the invading troops, which left Sanaqra dead and three of his comrades abducted. A Palestinian child, Yazan Qar’an, 3 was injured by flying glass during the armed clashes.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Israeli army killed a top leader of Islamic Jihad in Qabatiya town, near Jenin when massive clashes broke out after they invaded a house in the area that the leader lived.
