NABLUS, (PIC)– Hamas issued a statement in the West Bank on Wednesday mourning the death of Ibrahim Sarhan at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces in a pre dawn raid today.

It said that Sarhan, 22, was captured after he was shot and wounded by the IOF special force in Fara’a refugee camp north of Nablus and held in one of the houses. It added that the soldiers deliberately delayed handing him over to the Palestinian medics, which led to his death.

The IOF forces arrested three Palestinians in the refugee camp in a campaign of arrests during which Sarhan was killed. In one of the houses they did not find the young man they wanted to detain so they took his brother and cousin in his place, locals told the PIC.

Five other Palestinians were detained in Al-Khalil villages of Samu, Dura, and Beit Ummar, local sources said, adding that three were arrested in Beit Ummar including a 16-year-old boy and a sick teen who was beaten along with his father and mother in front of the family members.
