A Palestinian boy was killed by Israeli army bullets in West Bank

The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that a boy was killed and 4 other Palestinians were wounded by Israeli soldiers’ bullets during clashes between the Israeli army and Palestinian gunmen on Tuesday night in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

On the other hand, the Israeli military claimed that the body of a young Israeli Druze who died at the age of 18 in a traffic accident in West Bank was “brought” from a hospital in Jenin, one of the strongholds of Palestinian army factions in the north of the occupied West Bank.

Local sources reported that the body is currently in possession of a Palestinian armed group.

Palestinian armed factions have previously kidnapped Israelis, dead or alive, to exchange them for Palestinian prisoners and recover the bodies of Palestinian activists killed in clashes with Israeli forces.

In Ramallah, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement that “Ahmed Amjad Shehadeh (16) was killed by a bullet in the heart fired by the Israeli occupation forces during an operation in Nablus”.

He added that 4 other Palestinians were also wounded by bullets from Israeli forces.

For their part, eyewitnesses reported that clashes between Palestinian gunmen and the Israeli army broke out in the city on Tuesday night near a religious shrine in Nablus, which the settlers used to visit with Israeli security guards, even though the city it is under the control of Palestinian security.

In a statement on its Telegram channel, a Palestinian armed group that calls itself “The Lions’ Den” and its members are usually active in the alleyways of the city, claimed responsibility for the “attacks it has carried out against Israeli forces.”

The Lions’ Den confirmed in its statement that there were armed clashes between its members and the “occupation forces in Nablus”.

For its part, Hamas praised the “revolutionary youth” who were “confronting” Israeli forces in Nablus, while the military wing of the Fatah movement announced that some of its fighters were participating in clashes against Israeli forces.

And the Israeli army has announced that it is carrying out “an operation in the city of Nablus to guarantee Israeli civilian access to Joseph’s Tomb,” a religious shrine visited by Jews because they believe it contains Joseph’s remains, while Palestinians they claim it is the grave of a local Muslim religious figure.

According to the Israeli military, ‘suspected gunmen in thearea they are firing live ammunition at our forces, who are responding with live ammunition.”

The Israeli military has not published any findings of this new violence in West Bank, which it has occupied since 1967.

In the wake of the bloody attacks in Israel since last March, the Israeli military has launched more than 2,000 raids and security operations in West Bank, especially in the areas of Jenin and Nablus (in the north), considered strongholds of armed groups.

These raids and clashes, some of which took place, resulted in the killing of more than 125 Palestinians, the highest toll in 7 years, according to the United Nations.
