When the army raided the Balata refugee camp near Nablus, the Israeli army shot and killed the 21-year-old Baker Mohamed Hasash.

Ramallah, the occupied West Bank– A Palestinian man was killed by Israeli troops in a clash that occurred after Israeli troops attacked the Balata refugee camp near Nablus in the occupied northern West Bank city.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the man as 21-year-old Baker Mohammed Hasash, and stated that he was shot in the head at dawn on Thursday and died.

Hashish’s family told local media that the Israeli army had been trying to arrest him for a long time.

In a video interview, Hashash’s mother said that when he heard that the army raided the camp, he was afraid of being arrested and running away from home.

Local media quoted his brother as saying that Hashish was in conflict with the Israeli army before he was shot.

After being killed, protests took place in the Balata refugee camp, the largest in the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli army conducts such attacks almost daily in the occupied West Bank, including in areas controlled by the Palestinian National Authority in Ramallah, which is an internationally recognized entity with limited autonomy in the city center.

On Thursday, at least 21 Palestinians were arrested in night raids in various cities and villages in the occupied West Bank. Eight of them were from the village of Denisham west of Ramallah.
