Palestinian Wounded in «Israeli» Raid Martyred
A Palestinian o national succumbed to his wounds Sunday after being shot last month during an "Israeli" raid on a refugee camp near Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, a Palestinian official said.
Raed al-Salhi, 21, was shot in the raid as Israeli soldiers sought to arrest him at the Dheisheh refugee camp in early August, said Issa Qaraqe, head of prisoners' affairs for the Palestinian Authority.
Qaraqe said he was shot by five bullets at close range. Salhi passed away at the "Israeli" hospital where he was being treated.
The "Israeli" entity's army said it was looking into the incident and was not immediately able to comment.
A wave of unrest that broke out in October 2015 had martyred at least 294 Palestinians and had killed two Americans, two Jordanians, an Eritrean, a Sudanese and a British national, according to an AFP toll.
The entity's authorities alleged that most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming operations.
Others were martyred in protests and clashes, while some lost their lives in "Israeli" air strikes on the Gaza Strip.
The violence had greatly subsided in recent months, but tension around the highly sensitive al-Aqsa mosque compound in al-Quds' [Jerusalem] Old City saw a spike in July.
