    Palestinian dies days after being shot in Israeli raid

    JENIN, PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES (AFP) – A Palestinian succumbed to his wounds yesterday, five days after being shot by the Israeli army during a home demolition in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

    In a statement, the ministry confirmed “the death of the young man, Hamad Mustafa Hussein Abu Jelda, 24, after being shot by the Israeli occupation forces in Jenin camp a few days ago”.

    Security sources in Jenin told AFP Abu Jelda had been shot during an Israeli army raid on Jenin camp last Tuesday to destroy the home of Raad Hazem, who killed three Israelis in a deadly shooting attack in Tel Aviv. Pictures of Abu Jelda released by local activists showed him posing with an M16 rifle, though no armed faction has claimed him as a member.
