The Palestinian Health Ministry has reported that a Palestinian man died, on Thursday night, of severe wounds suffered several weeks ago, after the soldiers invaded the al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah. The sources said that, three weeks ago, Shadi Ghbeish, 38 years of age, was repeatedly beaten by several soldiers after they fired many gas bombs at his home, causing his family to suffer severe effects of tear gas inhalation.
