IDF troops destroyed the house of an Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades fugitive in Nablus on Wednesday afternoon. Palestinian news agency, Ma'an, identified the man as Abed A-Za'akot, adding that it was the seventh time the family home had been destroyed. Ma'an quoted Za'akot's brother as saying: "My brother has been wanted for four years but every time the army surrounds the home and calls on everyone to get out - he is not there." A woman was shot in the hand and a 16-year-old boy was hit by a rubber bullet as IDF soldiers shot at rioting Palestinians who had gathered at the scene of the operation, according to Palestinian medical sources. Eyewitnesses said that IDF troops were using dogs during the operation.
