Palestinian health officials say a gunman who was shot by Israeli troops in the Balata refugee camp in the northern West Bank this morning died of his wounds.

The Israel Defense Forces said earlier troops entered the camp in Nablus to conduct arrests.

“During the operation of forces in the Balata refugee camp in the city of Nablus, the forces fired at gunmen who fired at them, [and] a suspect was hit,” the IDF said in a statement.

The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry had said earlier that man was critically hurt by the gunfire.

The ministry provides an update that the man, named as Ahmed Abu Junaid, 21, has now died of his wounds.
