Palestinian Protester shot dead in a clash between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians demonstrating against illegal settlements in the west bank

Palestinian killed by the Israeli army in West Bank as clashes between the Israeli army and Palestinians erupted on Friday. The Protester was shot dead in a clash between soldiers and Palestinians demonstrating against illegal settlements.

West Bank demonstrations often turn violent with Palestinian protesters hurling rocks and firebombs at Israeli forces who fire tear gas, rubber-coated bullets, and sometimes live ammunition to disperse them.

“A citizen who was shot in the head with live ammunition died,” the Palestinian health ministry said, adding the incident happened in the village of Beit Dajan, near Nablus.

The Israeli military said it was looking into the report.

Atef Yussef Hanaysheh, 42, was killed in a clash between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians demonstrating against Israeli settlement activity, said Beit Dajan Mayor Abdelrahman Hanani.

“The soldiers fired when we approached a wildcat settlement near the village,” said Hanani.

Palestinians demonstrate against illegal settlements

Many Palestinians gather every week on Fridays across the West Bank to protest the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements.

The Israeli military said “dozens of Palestinian rioters hurled rocks” at its troops who “responded with riot dispersal means and by firing into the air”.

“We are aware of reports regarding a Palestinian casualty. The cause of the injury is still unknown. The incident is being examined,” it said.

Israeli settlements are considered illegal under international law. Almost half-a-million Israeli settlers live in around more than 200 settlements and dozens of unauthorised outposts scattered across the Palestinian territories.
