RAMALLAH, Wednesday, January 11, 2023 (WAFA) – A Palestinian youth, identified as Ahmad Amer Abu Jneid, 21, has died of wounds sustained earlier during an Israeli army raid of Balata refugee camp in Nablus, according to the Ministry of Health.
It said earlier that Abu Jneid was shot in the head and was critical in hospital until he was pronounced dead in the afternoon.
Israeli soldiers raided Balata refugee camp early this morning to arrest activists but were faced with fierce resistance, forcing them to withdraw without arresting anyone but not before shooting and critically injuring Abu Jneid, who was studying to be a journalist.
Abu Jneid is the fifth Palestinian to be killed by Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank since the start of this year. Three of those who were killed were minors.
