Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades mourned its leader Ibrahim Al-Nabulsi and his companions, Islam Sabbouh and Hussein Taha, who were martyred in an armed confrontation with the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) that surrounded them in a house in the eastern neighborhood of the Old City of Nablus.

It is noteworthy that martyr Al-Nabulsi was considered one of the most wanted Resistance fighters by the IOF and has survived several assassination attempts.
An Israeli military official revealed that the confrontation between Israeli forces and the martyr in Nablus lasted for three hours before the occupation targeted the house that Al-Nabulsi was located in with missiles.
Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth quoted a senior Israeli security official as saying that Lau missiles were fired at the building in which Al-Nabulsi was located.
The official added that the building was also targeted with a Matador missile, causing the building to collapse, which led to the martyrdom of Nabulsi and his companions.
Palestinian factions mourn the three martyrs
The Hamas movement mourned the martyrs of Nablus, describing them as the heroes who bravely confronted the occupation forces.
Hamas stressed the people's right to respond to this Israeli massacre and force the Israeli occupation and settlers to pay a heavy price.
The Ahrar Movement also mourned the three martyrs, stressing that their martyrdom will remain fuel for the continuation of the resistance.
On its part, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine stressed that the Israeli aggression against the city of Nablus is part of a plan targeting all Palestinian cities, villages, towns and camps.
Earlier, eyewitnesses said that armed confrontations erupted after the IOF stormed Nablus at approximately 6h30 am and besieged the house where Al-Nabulsi was located in.
