Undercover Israeli forces arrested a wanted Palestinian in the West Bank city of Nablus this morning, the Israel Defense Forces says.
According to the IDF, troops of the elite Duvdevan unit entered Nablus after receiving intelligence about the suspect’s whereabouts from the Shin Bet security agency.
The wanted man was shot while attempting to flee, the IDF says.
Shortly after, he was detained and taken by the forces for medical treatment, before questioning by the Shin Bet.
Palestinian media outlets publish footage from the incident, naming the suspect as Muhammad Saleh Hamdan.
