JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say a Palestinian suspected of plotting an attack in Israel was killed during an arrest raid in the Qalandia refugee camp in the Jerusalem area.
He is the third Palestinian to be killed over the past week during a confrontation with Israeli forces. Relatives identified him as 20-year-old Mohammed Lafi Abu Latifeh.
Israeli paramilitary border police entered the refugee camp early Monday to arrest two Palestinians suspected of plotting an attack in Israel. Police say one surrendered, but the second ran to the roof of a building.
Police ordered him to stop, and then shot him in the lower part of his body. He tried to jump to a nearby roof but fell. A police paramedic treated him but he died of his wounds.
