Jenin – The Israeli occupation army announced today that one of its soldiers was killed during a raid in the northern West Bank town of Ya’bad.
The army said a 21-year-old staff sergeant who served in the Golani Brigade Reconnaissance Unit was killed this morning when he was hit in the head by a rock during an army operation in Yabad.
Following the incident, a large-scale Israeli army force stormed the town and raided the homes where the soldier was killed and questioned and detained dozens of local citizens, including children and women.
It said in a later statement that the army returned to the town and arrested people from the house where the rock was thrown that killed the officer.
Citizens clashed with the soldiers who fired teargas canisters and rubber bullets causing several suffocation cases, said the sources.
