1 Palestinian killed, 4 injured by Israeli army fire in West Bank

Ramallah, July 6 (Petra) — Israeli occupation troops shot and killed a Palestinian and injured four Saturday morning when they fired on youth in a village in the West Bank, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.

An Israeli force raided the village of Beit Urr Al Tahta, West of Ramallah, and opened fire on young men, killing 22-year-old Ahmad Suleiman and injuring four others. The body of Suleiman arrived at the Palestine Medical Center in Ramallah, said the ministry.

In ongoing search-and-arrest raids across the West Bank, Israeli occupation forces rounded up 15 people, including former prisoners, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club.

It said in a statement that troops stormed into the cities of Qalqilya, Hebron, Ramallah, Jericho, and East Jerusalem and detained the men in operations that saw physical assaults and threats against the detainees and their families, vandalism and destruction of homes and property.

The arrests are part of raids and assaults in the West Bank by the occupation army, which have been stepped up since the war on Gaza began on October 7, bringing the total number of detainees in the past nine months to 9,535.
