RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA) – A Palestinian was killed and four others injured early Friday by an Israeli army fire during a raid on the Tulkarm refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, local media reported.

The Israeli army stormed the Tulkarm camp, which led to confrontations and armed clashes, as Palestinian youths tried to resist the intrusion, eyewitnesses told Anadolu.

The Israeli army used a military bulldozer and dozens of military vehicles, and deployed snipers on the rooftops of the houses, with heavy fire of live ammunition, tear gas and stun grenades.

Palestine's official WAFA news agency said a local hospital received five injured people, including a 23-year-old man who died shortly due to critical injury in the chest.

For its part, the Tulkarem Brigade which is affiliated with the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement, said in a press release that it "responded to the Israeli incursion into the Tulkarem camp, with armed clashes and improvised explosive devices."

Since the beginning of this year, the West Bank has been witnessing repeated Israeli army raids and settlers' attacks on Palestinian cities and towns.
