In a statement, the ministry confirmed “the death of the young man, Hamad Mustafa Hussein Abu Jelda, 24, after being shot by the Israeli occupation forces in Jenin camp a few days ago”.

Security sources in Jenin told AFP that Abu Jelda had been one of dozens of Palestinians shot during an Israeli raid on Jenin camp last Tuesday to destroy the home of Raad Hazem.

Abu Jelda is said to have been previously detailed by Israeli forces, according to the Palestinian news agency, Wafa, who reported that he had spent two and a half years in Israeli jail.

Human rights activists say Israel’s policy of demolishing the homes of suspected attackers amounts to collective punishment, which is illegal under international law.
