Twee activisten van Islamitische Jihad gedood in vuurgevecht bij Jenin

Straathoekwerkers van de Islamitische Jihad die een weg blokkeren en daarbij in een vuurgevecht met een Israëlische patrouille raken, zijn volgens de PA even 'onschuldige burgers' als een winkelende vrouw die door een terrorist wordt opgeblazen?

Jenin - Ma'an - Two Palestinian activists affiliated to the military wing of Islamic Jihad, the Al-Quds Brigades, were killed in an Israeli ambush on Monday morning in the northern West Bank town of Qabatia, south of Jenin.

Palestinian medical sources said that 32-year-old Ahmad Abu Zeid and 20-year-old Ammar Zakarna were killed, while 21-year-old Neji Nazzal was seriously injured and was sent to the government hospital in Jenin.

Sources in the Al-Quds Brigades said the activists were sitting under the trees in the western neighborhood of the town after blocking the access road to the area with rocks to impede potential Israeli patrols. When they rose to move, they were surprised by an Israeli infantry unit, who ordered them to surrender.

According to the Al-Quds Brigades sources, after they refusing to surrender, they exchanged fire with the Israeli troops and Nazzal was injured in the thigh. The two other fighters tried to rescue him, even though they were also injured by this time, however, they managed to run away.

"Ammar was found bleeding after the Israeli soldiers prevented ambulances from evacuating him. He continued bleeding until he died," the source said. Ahamad and Neji were also trapped in the western neighborhood, bleeding while ambulances were barred from the area. "Finally, medics in an ambulance were able to evacuate Neji Nazzal, while Ahmad Abu Zeid died of his wound," the source added

Ahmad Abu Zeid left behind a wife, an eight-year-old daughter, and a five-year-old son. He joined Islamic Jihad three years ago. The Israeli military has pursued him for two years, raiding his home several times.

Ammar Zakarna, the Al-Quds Brigades said, had managed to conceal his affiliation with the group, and had not been pursued by the Israeli military.
