Israeli army kills two Al-Aqsa members in a new Nablus incursion

Nablus - Ma'an - Two members of the Fatah-affiliated Al-Aqsa Brigades were killed during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the old city of Nablus on Monday night, according to Palestinian medical sources. Clashes also broke out in Qabatia, south of Jenin, between Israeli Special Forces and Palestinian fighters.
Sources in Nablus added that Ala' Ziad, 26, and Muhannad Imraish, 24, who were members of an Al-Aqsa group called 'Knights of the Night', were killed after bleeding for hours because the medical crew was not able to approach them after they were injured.
The sources added that Ziad bled for an hour and a half and that Imraish was hit in the main artery of his leg, causing heavy bleeding.
The director of the Palestinian Medical Relief Services, Dr. Ghassan Hamdan, told Ma'an that both men were injured in the clash and left to bleed for hours. He added that the Israeli forces banned the medical crews from approaching Imraish to give him the suitable medical aid.
A state of general mourning was announced in the city and a general strike was declared; the shops in the city have closed their doors.
The Al-Aqsa brigades announced that the funeral for both men will take place today before noon, starting at Rafidia Hospital in Nablus.
The Israeli forces frequently raid the city of Nablus, situated in the north of the occupied West Bank, and yesterday the Israeli forces entered the city and its old centre, which ended in the killing of the two Palestinians.
While in Qabatia, south of Jenin, the Israeli forces failed to assassinate some members of the Al-Quds brigades, who are affiliated to the Islamic Jihad movement, and the An-Nasser Salah Addin brigades, who are affiliated to the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC).
Speaking to Ma'an via telephone, one of the members who escaped assassination said, "A group of Israeli Special Forces infiltrated the western neighbourhood of Qabatia; a group of fighters discovered them and clashed fiercely with the Israeli unit."
He added, "More than 15 Israeli vehicles arrived on the scene to support the special unit and shot at the houses of the citizens before launching a search campaign in the houses, looking for the so-called 'wanted' Palestinians."
The spokesman for the brigades condemned the Israeli escalation against activists and members of the Islamic Jihad movement. He claimed that the Israeli forces are pressuring the relatives of the 'wanted' Palestinians in order to force them to reveal details about where they hide. He stressed that "all policies of killing and assassination will not stop the Palestinians from continuing their struggle against the occupation."
