Israeli occupation forces shot and killed, before dawn Friday, a Palestinian young man, and injured eight others, during a military invasion into the Tulkarem refugee camp, in the northwestern part of the West Bank, local sources reported.

Media sources reported that the Israeli army stormed the Tulkarem refugee camp, in the northwestern part of the occupied West Bank, and positioned sharpshooters on the rooftops of civilian homes.

Local Palestinians protested the invasion, while armed Palestinian resistance fighters exchanged fire with the occupation army.

Occupation forces opened fire with live rounds, tear gas canisters, and concussion grenades, shooting one young man, identified as Mahmoud Jihad Al-Jarad, 23, in the chest with live ammunition.

Al-Jarad was transported to the Martyr Thabet Thabet Governmental Hospital in Tulkarem with critical gun shot wounds to the chest, where doctors pronounced him dead shortly after arrival.

It was added that eight others were also shot with live rounds, one of whom was deemed in serious condition.

On Friday afternoon, large crowds of local Palestinians gathered in front of the Martyr Thabet Thabet Governmental Hospital to receive the body of the slain young man.

Mourners carried the body wrapped in the Palestinian flag, on their shoulders through the streets to the slain young man’s family home in the eastern neighborhood.

Family and loved ones said their final goodbyes, before performing the funeral prayer at the Othman bin Affan Mosque in Tulkarem, before laying his body to rest in the western cemetery in Tulkarem.
