Many Israeli colonists, illegally squatting on Palestinian lands near Nablus, invaded a village and shot one man with a live round after attacking a Palestinian home.

Hazem Nasser, the head of Madama Village Council, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, said the attack was carried out by more than 30 illegal colonists, including a guard.

Nasser added that the soldiers tried to break into the home of Khalil Hamad Qet, in the southern area of the village, and hurled stones at its windows and doors, causing damage.

Furthermore, an armed guard of the illegal colony, who was also participating in the assault, shot a young man with live fire, before Palestinian medics rushed him to Rafidia hospital, in Nablus.
