For the third consecutive time, Israeli forces broke into the village of Burqin, western Jenin on Sunday morning searching for Ahmad Nasr Jarrar after getting reports that he was hiding in the village.

Three Palestinians were arrested amid clashes erupted between Israeli forces and the residents of the village. One of them was suffering burns across his body from earlier clashes on Saturday evening, Wafa News agency reported.

Accordingly, Israeli forces shot Ahmad Samir Abu Obeid, 19, in the head during the second raid on Saturday and he died of his wounds hours later.

Since Friday night, Israeli forces broke into several homes belonging to the Jarrar family in Jenin questioning them about their relative Ahmed Nasr Jarrar. They used sniffer dogs to to track down him.

Ahmad Nasr Jarrar, 22-year-old, is accused of killing a 35-year-old Israeli settler last month on the main road near an illegal Israeli settlement near Nablus.

He is the son of Nasser Jarrar, who was active in al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, and was killed in 2002 during the second intifada.
