JENIN (Ma'an) -- A man was killed and two others injured in clashes early Tuesday between locals and Israeli forces in Jenin refugee camp in the northern occupied West Bank.

Majd Mohammad Anis Lahlouh, 22, was shot directly in the heart by Israeli soldiers, witnesses said. Karim Sbeih and Alah Abu Khalifa, both in their twenties, were critically wounded.

One was shot in the bladder and the other was hit by a dumdum bullet in the chest.

Israeli forces raided the Jenin camp at 3 a.m. and broke into the home of Islamic Jihad leader Bassam al-Saedi.

Clashes broke out with camp residents, who threw empty bottles and stones at Israeli soldiers, who responded with live fire, tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets.

The body of Majd Mohammad Anis Lahlouh was transferred to Jenin hospital.

Israeli forces deployed in large numbers around the camp following the shootings, locals said.

An Israeli army spokesman said that Israeli forces entered the camp to detain a suspect in "terrorist activities."

"Shots were fired at the forces, and improvised explosives and rocks were hurled at personnel, lightly injuring two soldiers. Troops responded with live fire to eliminate the threat, initial reports show one Palestinian was killed and two injured," he added.

I wonder if shots WERE fired. No way of knowing, really.

Shots were definitely fired by American settlers at native Indians, as Colin Wright's ancestors stole the land and committed genocide. Yet here we are a few hundred years later. Colin is safe inside his occupation settlement, and his buddies run the United States of America while the Huron, Mohawk, Navajo and a hundered other nations were either wiped out by genocide, or pushed into bantustan reservations. Were shots fired? Of course they were. And Colin is safe in his house on whose land?

The last paragraph was applied later so how can we know whether there are facts?

I am sure that there was no resistance at all. that these people were drinking tea, and israel bursted in and started shooting.

israeli media is reporting that soldiers came under fire, and that the alleged gunman ran into a civilian house for cover.

Well, Colin, we know that when your settlement was set up on occupied native Indian lands in Amerca, lots of shots were fired. Entire nations were wiped out, and the survivors of others were shoved onto bantustan "reservations" so that you and your fellow Coling Wrights could live the life of luxury as illegal occupiers. Remind us, which settlement do you live in?

I don't believe so Colin. And if if if they did? They had the right to defend themselves. The army started this mess again.

"Colin", why would you believe what is culturally prescribed outright lies by Palestinian Arabs? Have you ever lived among the Arabs? Have you visited Israel? Bottom line: all Arabs are easily excitable and pathological liars in daily life. That is part of their racial characteristics based on tribal/clan culture.

@1 if you were in an Israeli army you would think twice before opening fire even in self defence.

Of course - you were not in the army, you have no idea what live fire rules are and you have no idea that to fire in a crowded camp, when the mission is arrest is the last thing a commander would ever do - if only because it makes the situation far more dangerous for his own men. That is why you can be assured there were explosives and firing.

For a feeling as to what the Israeli raid must have been like I recommend everyone to see the film 'Five Broken Cameras' . I would encourage anyone to view this.

"Shots were fired..." Palestinians NEVER shoot at soldiers. They instinctively know it would be disastrous. Israel would escalate viciously and make their lives hell. They throw rocks and the occasional Molotov cocktail BECAUSE they're dramatic, symbolic and pointedly non-lethal (soldiers are FULLY protected in perspex riot gear) which doesn't mean they don't sometimes get killed, as in the sad case here of 22-year-old Majd Mohammad Anis Lahlouh may his soul rest in perfect peace.

@11alex.....no question....you are right..but folks who hate Jews now have an acceptable way to spew their poison..israel ,there is no institutional hatred of Muslims or Arabs in the western nations...they would rather put up with the negative issues that Muslims bring to them,then the positive contributions that a Jewish population(no matter how tiny)brings them...this poison has had 2000 years of brewing into their souls...they can't help it...it is buried into their genes...how sad

To Brian Cohen #2: 'Shots were definitely fired by American settlers at native Indians...' Surely, in this day and age, whoever wrote you could come up with something better, Brian. This reminds me of the computer programs I saw back in the eighties.

Re Brian #8: 'Well, Colin, we know that when your settlement was set up on occupied native Indian lands in Amerca...' And now it's just repeating. Are you a virus, Brian?

To Alex #11: 'Bottom line: all Arabs are easily excitable and pathological liars in daily life. That is part of their racial characteristics...' Now, if I chose to write 'bottom line: all Jews are easily excitable and pathological liars in daily life. That is part of their racial characteristics...' it would be pretty indisputable that I was an anti-semite. Since you wrote what you did, Alex, it follows that you are a bigot.

To Ran #11: 'actually - you can know http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/171107' Lol. That's like consulting Volkischer Beobachter to determine if Jews really did commit a crime. It's typical of just how surreal the whole situation is that you would offer that up as a source.

To Roman #12: 'if you were in an Israeli army you would think twice before opening fire even in self defence.' Oh NONSENSE. If I were in the Israeli army I could murder children for my own amusement without consequence if I saw fit. In fact, I could do that if I were a Jew of any description in Israel. It's not a crime to kill Arabs in the o' Light unto the Nations. You know that.

To #26: '...no matter what you think of chanel 7, there still is a video there showing the soldiers under fire!!!' And I take it there's no doubt about the authenticity or significance of the video? Jeepers, all those other leftist, Palestinian-loving Israeli media outlets must be in on the conspiracy!

@colin: authenticity??! somehow I dont think staging a video like this in jenin (those who know the place recognise), while risking soldiers by staging a gunfight in midle of a potentially hostile area is that easy to do (especially without it leaking inside israel)... significance??! this shows there were shots at israeli soldiers...

To #28: '@colin: authenticity??! somehow I dont think staging a video like this...' So then all those other leftist, Palestinian-loving Israeli media outlets ARE in on the conspiracy.
