Military claims man refused to stop after hurling stones at troops; earlier IDF shot two men in Jenin in clashes erupting as forces entered city’s refugee camp to arrest terror suspects

A Palestinian was shot dead by troops near Bethlehem on Tuesday, after hurling stones at soldiers and refusing to stop when warned, the military said.

Earlier two Palestinians were killed by IDF fire in the refugee camp in Jenin in the northern West Bank after clashes that broke out when forces entered the area to arrest terror suspects.

Israel’s border police said its forces came under heavy gunfire during an operation in the camp to arrest a suspect wanted for what it described as “terrorist activity”.

After he was detained, gunmen fired at the Israeli forces and a crowd of around 150 Palestinians threw fire-bombs, stones and an improvised grenade, the border police statement said.

The Israeli forces responded with live fire and suffered no casualties, according to the statement.
