With the murder of Al Ladaa, the number of martyrs in Aqabat Jaber in less than a week rose to two.
A young Palestinian named Suleiman Aish was martyred after the IOF shot at civilians as they stormed the camp last Monday.
Last Thursday, the ministry announced that Ahmed Yacoub Taha was shot dead by the IOF north of Salfit in the West Bank.
Israeli media claimed then that the army had killed Taha while he was "attempting to carry out a stabbing operation near the Ariel settlement."

Since the beginning of 2023, the number of Palestinian martyrs has exceeded 100 as "Israel" is threatening a second Nakba through the expansion of settlement projects condemned by the international community.
In related news, the Al-Khalil Construction Committee confirmed on Sunday that the Israeli occupation authorities launched plans to forcibly seize at least 70 Palestinian homes in the occupied southern West Bank.
The director of the committee, Imad Hamdan, indicated on Sunday that the Israeli authorities plan to hand over the seized homes to illegal Israeli settlers in the Old City of Al-Khalil. On his part, Issa Amro, a Palestinian activist in Al-Khail, warned that "the start of the implementation of the Israeli plan, disclosed early this year, sounds a dangerous alarm."

As part of its settler expansion policies, the Israeli occupation routinely demolishes Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank and the eastern part of occupied Al-Quds, alleging that they were built without licenses.
It is noteworthy that under international law, all Israeli settlements are illegal, and the United Nations Security Council has condemned Israeli settlement activities in the occupied territories in several resolutions.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in late February that Israeli-built settlements are "illegal" and they "must stop".
