Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man on Thursday during a military raid in the occupied West Bank city of al-Bireh, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Local sources said that Israeli forces barged their way into the city of Sateh Marhaba, near Al-Bireh, ransacking several houses and sparking confrontations.

The heavily-armed Israeli soldiers opened fire at local youths attempting to block their passage, killing Yazan Afaneh, a 26-year-old resident of the nearby Qalandiya refugee camp, north of Jerusalem.

Israeli forces on a regular basis storm Palestinian cities and villages in the occupied West Bank to arrest Palestinian popular activists.
