Israeli security forces shot dead a Palestinian in the West Bank on Wednesday during an operation in a refugee camp outside Nablus, a Palestinian medic and residents of the camp said.

Ibrahim Sarhan, 22, was shot at least twice, once in each thigh, and was dead by the time he reached hospital, the medic said.An IDF spokesman had no immediate information on the incident and was checking the report.

Residents of al-Fari'a refugee camp, northeast of Nablus, said Israeli soldiers had entered the camp in the early morning, apparently in an attempt to make arrests.
