Israeli sources have confirmed that the Palestinian teen has died from serious wounds; he was shot and seriously injured after he reportedly rammed soldiers at a military roadblock near Tulkarem, in northern West Bank.
The Palestinian was later identified as Mohammad Nidal Younis, 15, from the Namsawi neighborhood in Nablus city, in northern West Bank.
Israeli sources said a security guard was seriously injured before he was rushed to Tal HaShomer medical center and added that his wounds were to the chest and head.
The Israeli army said in a statement that the Palestinian sped into the roadblock and rammed his car into the guard post, causing serious wounds to a security guard, 34 years of age.
It added that the other guard opened fire at the Palestinian car, seriously wounding the driver before he was moved to a hospital where he died from his wounds.
It is worth mentioning that the soldiers also invaded Nablus city, before storming and ransacking the family home of the slain child, in addition to detaining and interrogating the family in their home.

Israeli sources have reported, Monday, that one soldier was seriously injured after being struck by a Palestinian car in what the army is speculating a car-ramming attack at a military roadblock near Tulkarem, in northern West Bank. Unconfirmed Israeli reports alleged the Palestinian driver was killed.
Israeli media outlets resorted to the frequently used term “neutralized,” to refer to the condition of the Palestinian driver, while some sources claimed his death has been confirmed.

The Israeli army claimed the car was traveling from the Palestinian side of the roadblock before it struck the guard.
It added that the soldiers at the roadblock opened fire at the car, and “neutralized the driver.”
It is worth mentioning that Hebrew media reports said the driver was killed and not just injured.
The Israeli soldier, 34, suffered head and chest wounds, and his condition has been described as serious but stable.
The incident took place, according to Israeli reports, at 1:30 after midnight.
On Saturday, December 4th, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian in occupied Jerusalem. The Palestinian Center for Huaman Rights (PCHR) said described the incident as a crime amounting to an extrajudicial execution.
“On Saturday, 4 December 2021, in a crime amounting to extrajudicial execution, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) shot and killed a Palestinian male, who stabbed an Israeli settler in occupied East Jerusalem; even though IOF had shot and wounded him, neutralizing any threats he proposed,” the PCHR said.
The Palestinian has been identified as Mohammad Shawkat Salima, 25, from Salfit in the central West Bank.
