JENIN (Reuters) -

Israeli soldiers shot dead a 20-year-old Palestinian terrorist on Tuesday during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp in Yehudah and Shomron, Palestinian and Israeli sources said.

The Israeli military said its troops opened fire as the man tried to flee arrest and after Palestinians shot and threw firebombs at them. He died of his wounds in an Israeli hospital, a military statement said.

A Palestinian security source identified the victim as Islam al-Tubasi. Islamic Jihad issued a statement identifying Tubasi as one of its members.
