Second Palestinian Killed in Weekend Clashes With Israeli Army


Palestinian officials say Amir Omar Shahada, 22, was shot in the chest and later succumbed to his wounds in a West Bank hospital

A Palestinian man was killed during clashes with Israeli army forces near the West Bank city of Nablus Saturday, according to a Palestinian Red Crescent spokesperson.

Amir Omar Shahada, 22, was shot in the chest in the village of Urif, said Ghassan Douglas, the Palestinian Authority official in charge of monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank. A 16-year-old Palestinian boy was shot in the leg, Douglas added.

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that a young Palestinian man who was rushed to a hospital in Nablus in critical condition died of his wounds.

According to Douglas, The incident began with confrontations between settlers from the settlement of Yitzhar and the residents of Urif. Israeli army forces arrived at the scene and clashes erupted, during which Israeli soldiers used live fire.

This is the second such incident in a day. Muhammed Zain Jabri, age 24 from Hebron, was shot by live fire and later succumbed to his wounds in hospital Friday, the Palestinian Health ministry said. According to eyewitnesses in Hebron, Jabri was handicapped. Palestinian media outlets say Jabri was deaf and mute.

Dozens of Palestinians protested throughout the West Bank, including in the cities of Hebron, Nablus, Ramllah and in Kfar Kadum. Protests come amid tensions that rose after U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
