HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An elderly Palestinian man died of a heart attack early Saturday after Israeli forces raided his home in the southern West Bank, locals said.
Witnesses told Ma'an that 70-year-old Abd al-Salam Ata Ubeido died of a heart attack following a heated argument with Israeli soldiers, who raided his house in Hebron to summon his son for interrogation.
Ubeido had the heart attack after soldiers left his home, locals told Ma'an. He died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said she could confirm that there was army "activity" in Hebron, but was not familiar with a heart attack incident "in the presence of Israeli soldiers."
