    Israeli occupation soldiers opened fire at a vehicle carrying Muhammad Ubaid, 30, on a road between the villages of Anza and Sanur near Jenin, Aljazeera's correspondent reported on Tuesday. Ubaid was killed.

     

    The second activist, also a member of the Brigades, is an unidentified 25-year-old man. He was injured and detained.

     

    The group is an armed wing of Palestinian President Yasir Arafat's Fatah movement.

     

    Earlier, al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades activist Nidal Ukasha was killed in an ambush by the Israeli army in al-Yasmina district of the West Bank city of Nablus, reported Aljazeera's correspondent.

     

    Israeli forces withdrew from the area after clashing with resistance fighters and arresting five Palestinians, said the correspondent.
