Another member was injured in the attack.The Annahar Lebanese Paper has reported that Mas’ad Hojeir, was shot by a live round that penetrated his eye and exited through the back of his head causing instant death.

The paper added a member of the Palestinian Security Force in the camp was also injured in the attack.
Dozens of Palestinian fighters flooded the streets and alleys of the camp after the attack took place.

The paper further stated that the attack might be connected to a previous shooting that targeted Hussein Tawil, former member of the Jund al-Sham armed group.
