The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the Palestinian as Mohammad Manasra, 25, who was killed during an Israeli raid into the camp.
The official Palestinian news agency Wafa quoted eyewitnesses as saying Manasra was killed when the Israeli forces blew up his house’s door with a bomb when he approached the door to open it for them.
