The suspect took part and planned a series of terror attacks across the West Bank. Military sources said that he was affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Two additional suspects were arrested in the raid.

Security forces encircled the suspect’s home in Beir Zeit and called on him to leave peacefully.  After he failed to comply, soldier’s opened fire, killing him.

Subsequently, about 150 Palestinians took part in a violent disturbance in the area. Security forces dispersed the rioters with non-lethal crowd control means. There were no injuries in the clash.

The Palestinian Authority condemned the killing of the suspect, who was identified as Muataz Washaha, 24.

“The assassination of martyr Washaha represents a new violation of human rights. Occupation forces deliberately killed martyr Washaha,” it said in a statement.
