An Israeli elite army force disguised itself as Arabs and successfully raided a Palestinian city, the Israeli Army confirmed.
One Palestinian terrorist was killed and several others were arrested during an Israeli army raid on a home in the West Bank town of Birzeit on Thursday.
“After the army left the house and the city, the body of Motazz Washaha, 22, was found,” a spokesperson for the Palestinians said.
The army confirmed the death of a Palestinian suspected of terrorist activities. “After the suspect was called upon to give himself up, he barricaded himself inside his home,” the military said in a statement.
The soldiers responded with fire and an assault rifle was recovered, the statement said. The army entered Birzeit, north of the Palestinian city of Ramallah in the West Bank on Thursday morning, and used riot dispersal means against stone-throwing Palestinians, on their way to the home.
