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  soldiers had entered the camp in the early morning, apparently in an attempt to make arrests.

Sarhan had been on his way to dawn prayers when he was shot, his uncle, Ismail Sarhan, told Reuters.
