Israeli forces kill Palestinian in Anata refugee camp raid

A Palestinian youth was killed and six others injured, including one critically, during an Israeli raid in East Jerusalem’s Anata refugee camp on Thursday, medics said.

 

Locals said Israeli forces raided the camp and attempted to break into the home of Subhi Abu Khalifa, who had earlier stabbed an Orthodox Jewish man in Jerusalem.

 

Wissam Faraj, 20, was shot in the heart with a hollow point, or dum dum, bullet and died during clashes which broke out during the raid, medics said.

 

Palestinians and Israeli forces exchanged gunfire during the incursion, with six Palestinians injured by live fire and 35 with rubber-coated steel bullets.

 

A Fatah spokesperson said dozens of Israeli forces and helicopters surrounded the camp while raiding the home of Abu Khalifa.
