Abu Shkheidem is said to have used a machine gun and a knife to carry out the attack. The Israeli Minister of Public Security said Abu Shkheidem’s wife had travelled overseas three days ago.

Dozens of occupying forces attacked the Shuafat refugee camp, which was closed on all sides of the partition wall of Israel, at 12:30 a.m. (10:30 GMT), and entered his home.

They caused extensive damage in the house and captured some of Abu Shkheidem’s family members, also his daughter.

Special forces were seen doing tear gas in meetings with teenagers around the house, preventing individuals, including journalists, from filming.

First moments of the raid on the house of martyr Fadi Abu Shkheidem, and the beating of Maydan al-Quds correspondent and a number of journalists.

The occupying forces began their retreat from the Shuafat refugee camp two hours later.

In violation of international law, Israel occupied and annexed the eastern part of Jerusalem and applied internal law to it after the 1967 war. Most of the international community views East Jerusalem controlled region and does not accept any Israeli demands for sovereignty or illegal contracts there.

As per local media, Abu Shkheidem worked as a teacher in the al-Rashidiya boy public high school, the oldest and only one serving the Muslim quarter of the old town, at Bab az-Zahra (Herods Gate). The occupying forces raided the school after the attack.
