Palestinian killed in Nablus as Israeli police on high alert
Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man during a raid in the West Bank city of Nablus on Monday, the Israeli army said. An Israeli army spokesman said troops entered Nablus to arrest what he described as a "wanted man". When the man attempted to get away, the troops fired warning shots and then fired at his lower body, the spokesman said, according to Reuters.
"He was hit and was transferred to an Israeli hospital, where he died of his wounds," he said.
Meanwhile, Israeli police early Tuesday put forces on high alert in the wake of a warning of the possible intention of one or more Palestinians to carry out an attack in the Tel Aviv area. According to Israeli press reports, police advised citizens to avoid traveling to Tel Aviv if possible. They set up roadblocks at city entrances and exits, manned by police officers, paramilitary Border Police and volunteers.
