A Palestinian man fell to his death while trying to escape Israeli occupation forces in the occupied West Bank early on Monday.

It was the third deadly arrest operation in less than a week, and came a day after clahses erupted in occupied Jerusalem when Israeli police stormed al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.

Border police forces entered the Qalandia refugee camp near Ramallah to arrest two 'suspects', police said. One of them was shot in the leg as he was running away across a roof, then fell to his death as he tried to leap to another roof, they added. 

Palestinians identified the dead man as Mohammad Abu Latifa, 18. 

According to sources in Qalandia, the Israeli forces raided the camp shortly before dawn, with clashes breaking out following the incident.

On Thuesday, Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian doctor in the southern West Bank while arresting his son.

On Wednesday, troops shot dead a Palestinian during clashes near the northern West Bank city Jenin.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesman for the Palestinian president warned that continuing Israeli provocations including the storming of al-Aqsa Mosque, the daily  killing of Palestinians,  and settlements expansion will force the leadership to take what he called ‘critical decisions'.
