PA security forces reportedly shoot dead PIJ fighter in West Bank clash

Palestinian security forces operating in the central West Bank city of Tulkarem reportedly shot dead a Palestinian Islamic Jihad fighter earlier tonight.

A spokesperson for the PA security forces says officers responded after coming under fire.

The PIJ military wing identified Ahmad Abu Foul as the suspect struck and killed but claimed he had not opened fire on the PA security forces. Abu Foul was reportedly wanted by Israel for terror-related offenses.

This is the second time in roughly one month that PA security forces have killed a PIJ fighter.
