TULKARM, Friday, May 14, 2021 (WAFA) – A Palestinian young man was shot dead today during clashes with the Israeli occupation forces near the village of Shwaika, north of Tulkarm city in the occupied West Bank, raising the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank today to 11, according to the Ministry of Health.
Nizar Abu Zeineh, 22, was shot and seriously injured with a live bullet in the chest by Israeli occupation forces who attacked dozens of protesters demonstrating in support of Gaza and Jerusalem. He was rushed to a hospital in Tulkarm where he succumbed to his wounds a couple of minutes later.
Clashes erupted with the Israeli occupation forces following the deadly incident in Shwaika and in the neighboring villages of Ramin, Bizzariya, Beit Lid and Far'oun, and 29 Palestinians were reportedly injured in the clashes.
Massive protests erupted across the West Bank since early Thursday-Friday dawn in response to the ongoing Israeli aggression on Gaza, Jerusalem and the Palestinian towns in 1948-occupied Palestine.
Israeli occupation forces used live ammunition in most of the protests in the West Bank resulting in 11 deaths and serious injuries.
