The IDF denied reports that it had killed an Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades operative, identified by Palestinians as Osama Saleh, in the Balata refugee camp near Nablus on Sunday. Palestinians had earlier claimed that the operative was shot and killed by IDF paratroopers after Palestinians threw a bomb at troops conducting arrests in the area. The IDF said that it had no involvement in the incident and that seemingly, the man was killed as a result of clashes between rival Palestinian factions.
