Fateh Activist Killed in Explosion in Nablus
A Fateh activist was killed Tuesday morning in a large explosion in the West bank city of Nablus, said reports.
He was identified as Shadi Al Asfuri, a 19-year-old, medical sources told AFP.
Palestinian sources said they were unable to immediately ascertain the cause of the explosion.
Fateh is a Palestinian resistance group aligned with PA President Yasser Arafat.
AFP's latest death tally for the Palestinian uprising against 34 years of Israeli military occupation comes out to 13 Arab Israelis, 548 Palestinians, and 146 Israelis, putting the ratio of casualties at around four Palestinians killed for every Israeli loss.
Israel’s wounded number in the high hundreds, while the Palestine Red Crescent Society puts the number of Palestinians injured at over 14,000.
Amnesty International reported early this year that almost 100 Palestinian children had been killed by Israeli soldiers, nearly all in situations where the occupation troops were under no immediate threat – Albawaba.com
