NABLUS (Ma’an) — A young Palestinian man died on Tuesday night after succumbing to wounds he sustained earlier in the afternoon during clashes with Israeli forces in the al-Jabal a-Shamali area of Nablus City in the northern occupied West Bank.
Head of the Al-Najah Governmental Hospital in Nablus told Ma’an that Khaled Walid Tayeh , 22, from Iraq al-Tayeh village near Nablus, died of a critical gunshot wound to the chest.
Israeli forces had raided the al-Jabal al-Shamali as part of their manhunt for the Palestinian teen suspected of stabbing and killing an Israeli settler on Monday.
Locals told Ma’an that forces surrounded a building in search of the suspect, 19-year-old Abd al-Karim Adel Assi, a Palestinian citizen of Israel. Israeli forces surrounded two houses in the area, one of the suspect’s family and another home allegedly belonging to Assi’s friends.
During the raid, clashes erupted between Palestinian youth in the area and Israeli forces, who heavily fired live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas at youth.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said that 110 injuries were reported during the raid: 32 of them with live bullets, 26 with rubber-coated steel bullets, 51 with severe tear gas inhalation, and one youth who was run over by an Israeli military jeep.
