On Thursday dawn, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian and shot three others, two seriously, in the eastern area of Nablus city, in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.
Media sources said many army vehicles invaded Nablus from several directions to accompany several buses filled with illegal Israeli colonizers, heading to Joseph’s Tomb after the army closed many streets and alleys, leading to massive protests.
The source added that military bulldozers also closed Amman Street with sand hills to block Palestinian traffic.
The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of Bader Samer Ribhi Masri, 19, and said the soldiers shot him in the chest before the medics rushed him to the Al-Arabi Hospital in Nablus.
The Health Ministry added that the soldiers also shot three other Palestinians with live fire, including two who suffered critical injuries, and caused dozens, mostly in their homes, to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency department of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Nablus, said a newborn girl, only twelve days of age, was among at least thirty Palestinians who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Jibril added that the soldiers also fired many rubber-coated steel bullets at a Palestinian ambulance while transporting a patient near the Balata refugee camp, damaging its windshield.
