Palestinian farmer shot dead by Israeli settler in Nablus

Palestinian farmer shot dead by Israeli settler in Nablus

A day after a Palestinian farmer from the village of Qusra was shot dead by Israeli settlers, Israeli forces fired live ammunition, tear gas, and rubber-coated steel bullets at locals in the village after Friday prayers.

According to the group, police questioned them on suspicion of negligent use of weapons and causing death by negligence.

The parent escorts ushered the boys into a cave to keep them safe until Israeli security forces arrived, according to reports.

Towards the end of last month, Israeli settlers poisoned and stole olives from Palestinian land in the Qalqiliya village of Jit in the occupied West Bank.

A United Nations agency that monitors incidents said earlier this year that an increase in settler violence had occurred alongside a major rise in Palestinian attacks against Israelis, the vast majority of which involved stone-throwing at vehicles.

A spokesperson for the Yitzhar settlement, Avraham Binyamin, said the hike was part of a "bar mitzvah trip for one of the children", though it is not clear if they coordinated the trip with the authorities, as is generally required in the West Bank.

The military would not say where the shooter was, saying only that the incident was being investigated. "IDF forces arrived at the site and rescued all the hikers".

Israel bombed six targets in Gaza with two "terror infrastructure targets" Thursday, injuring at least two Palestinians in the process.

"The investigation is continuing and police units are searching for the suspect who fled the scene", said a police spokesman. When Mr Odeh refused, one of them shot him, Mr Daghlas added.

The Samaria Regional Council said in a statement that there were approximately 100 Palestinians who attacked the group of children and parents.

"Mahmoud Ouda was shot in the chest while working his land in the village of Kasra near Nablus", Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official in charge of settlement affairs, told Anadolu Agency late Thursday.
