RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces released a young Palestinian man overnight Sunday after he was shot, injured, and detained the night before during a raid in which another Palestinian man was shot dead by the Israeli army.

According to the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners' Affairs, Lufti Muhammad Khalil was shot and detained near the scene of 33-year-old Ammar Ahmad Khalil Tirawi's killing, as Israeli forces sought to apprehend Tirawi for allegedly committing two shooting incidents Saturday morning in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.
One of the shootings resulted in the injury of a Palestinian man, while the second, which targeted an Israeli military post, caused no casualties.

An Israeli police spokesperson said at the time of Tirawi's killing that he had aimed a gun at Israeli forces when they arrived to apprehend him near Nabi Salih north of Ramallah, which prompted Israeli forces to return fire.

The spokesperson also said another Palestinian "youth" was detained for interrogation at the scene, but provided no other details.

According to the prisoners' committee, Khalil was released from custody after midnight on Monday, and had been treated at Israel's Hadassah Hospital for unspecified gunshot injuries. A spokesperson for the hospital could not be reached to comment on his condition.

An Israeli police spokesperson told Ma'an they had no further information regarding Khalil's interrogation, the circumstances of his arrest, or why he was released.

Unconfirmed reports said that Khalil and Tirawi were in a vehicle together when Israeli border police opened fire on them.
