A successful operation by a Haruv patrol in the Nablus area killed a commander in Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
Yesterday, during a patrol by soldiers of the Haruv Patrol from the Kfir Brigade, fire was opened at them in the area of the Zoata Bypass Junction. The fighters returned fire with precision and hit Amir Khalifa, a resident of the Al Ain refugee camp and commander of the local Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Battalions.
Khalifa was seriously injured in the head and died of his injuries shortly afterwards.
The Palestinian media say that he was wanted by Israel for a long time.
The IDF has not yet responded about the incident.
