The man, identified as 20-year-old Mahmoud Adwan, was subsequently shot dead by the soldiers.

“Special forces came under attack in [an] overnight operation in Qalandia,” IDF spokesman Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner posted on Twitter. “In the exchange one terrorist was killed and another wounded and detained.”

After the incident, dozens of Palestinians in Qalandia hurled stones at Israeli security forces, Haaretz reported.
