Armed members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group attend the funeral of Amjad Fayed in Jenin.

Monday, 23 May 2022 | One Palestinian was killed and another seriously wounded in Jenin overnight Friday in a gun battle with Israeli forces, according to Israeli media reports.

The fatality, identified by the Palestinian Authority’s WAFA news agency as Amjad Fayad, was a member of one of the armed factions in the Jenin refugee camp, according to Ynet.

In a statement, the IDF [Israel Defense Forces] said soldiers conducting a counterterror raid in Jenin had returned fire after being targeted with firebombs and an explosive device, as well as a drive-by shooting, according to the Israeli military.

On Saturday, PA [Palestinian Authority] Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh condemned Fayad’s death and called on the international community to “hold Israel accountable for its acts,” warning of “serious consequences of these repeated crimes.”
