TEHRAN (IQNA) – A Palestinian man was killed in the northern occupied West Bank city of Jenin, after armed clashes broke out between the Israeli regime forces and Palestinians following a dawn army raid.

This is according to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA and a local hospital.

The head of the Khalil Suleiman Governmental Hospital in Jenin, Wissam Baker, said that Muhammad Maher Marei was brought in at about 5:00am (02:00 GMT) on Wednesday after being shot in the chest.

Baker told Palestine TV that a bullet pierced Marei’s heart and that efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

“This is most likely a bullet from a sniper that aimed to kill,” said Baker. “This is what we’ve been getting used to in the recent raids on Jenin governorate – no raid takes place without lethal injuries. Even those that are wounded come with critical injuries,” he added.

The Palestinian resistance movement Islamic Jihad said that Marei had been one of their fighters, and died confronting an Israeli raid.

At least two Palestinian men were also arrested during the army’s raid in Jenin.

The Israeli army conducts raid-and-arrest operations on a near-daily basis in the occupied West Bank, which often result in injuries or killings of Palestinians.

The Zionist regime’s army arrested at least 13 Palestinians from across the occupied West Bank overnight on Wednesday.
