Palestinian reportedly dies week after West Bank clash with IDF

A Palestinian hit by Israeli army gunfire last week during clashes in the West Bank has died of his wounds, Palestinian sources tell AFP.

The sources say Dia al-Sabarini, 25, was seriously wounded in the northern town of Jenin and transferred to hospital on August 3. Five other Palestinians were wounded in the same clashes after troops had entered Jenin, according to Palestinian medics.

Israeli police say security forces had opened fire after coming under attack with explosive devices and Molotov cocktails during an operation in Jenin.
