A young Palestinian man died on Monday morning from wounds suffered in an Israeli raid on his village near Ramallah last week.
Rashad Theib Shoukha, 28, was critically injured by a gunshot to the chest during a dawn raid on Rammun village on Tuesday. His brothers Anwar and Akram were also injured in the raid.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said at the time that an Israeli soldier "was stabbed during routine activity ... the soldiers responded to the attackers in self defense, and three were injured."
The military said on Monday the circumstances of the incident were still being reviewed.
But Palestinian security sources said the clash took place when the Shoukha brothers went outside of their home to confront men they thought were thieves. However, the thieves turned out to be “Israeli soldiers working undercover,” the sources added.
In Jerusalem, Yenet news claim that a Palestinian youth hit a settler in his seventies with an axe to his head near the Damascus gate and escaped.
The same sources said that Israeli forces have begun a search party, looking for the Palestinian youth.
Magen David Adom Spokesman told Ynet that the man suffered wounds to the back of his head, his hands and his waist .The settler was transferred to Hadassah hospital in Western Jerusalem for treatment and is in stable condition.
The latest development in Jerusalem comes a few hours after Israeli forces raided the Jerusalem office of a university media institute on Monday, shutting down the launch of an online media network and detaining employees.
Plainclothes police shut down the launch of the Hona al-Quds news site in the al-Khalidiya neighborhood of Jerusalem's Old City, and confiscated equipment and files, network director Harun Abu Arrah told AFP.
Two employees -- Adel Ruished and Mohannad Izheman -- were detained, and guests attending the launch were blocked from entering.
Employees were presented with an order signed by the Israeli minister of internal security forbidding the event as a banned initiative of the Palestinian Authority, director of Al-Quds University Institute for Modern Media Lucy Nusseibeh told Ma'an.
The university, which launched Hona al-Quds, has been registered as an independent non-governmental organization with Israeli authorities for decades, Nusseibeh added.
The launch was intended to take place simultaneously with the institute's Ramallah office by Skype.
Meanwhile, in Gaza strip, Israeli planes dropped pamphlets in the southern Gaza Strip on Monday morning, warning Palestinians not to enter a no-go zone on its southern border. The leaflets, signed by Israeli forces general command, include a map of the zone.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said the leaflets were dropped in several locations, and "reiterated to the citizens of the Gaza Strip to keep a 300-meter distance," from the border area.
Israeli soldiers "will operate in accordance with the rules of engagement, and will use live fire if they need when the security fence is approached," the leaflet warned, according to the spokeswoman.
It also warned against "cooperation with the so-called terror organizations, involvement in violent riots, and approaching the security fence," she said.
