A Palestinian man died on Tuesday after Israeli forces stormed a refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.

Ahmed Ibrahim Oweidat, 20, “succumbed to critical wounds sustained by live bullets to the head, at dawn today in Aqabat Jaber camp” which is near Jericho, the ministry said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told AFP the incident was under investigation.

The official Palestinian news agency Wafa said three men were injured when the “undercover” forces raided the camp overnight.

The Fatah movement in Jericho has declared a general strike, excluding the health sector, in the district, Wafa said.

On Friday, an 18-year-old Palestinian shot by Israeli forces near Jenin died from his wounds.
