Palestinian killed by Israeli settlers near Nablus

NABLUS, Sunday, February 26, 2023 (WAFA) – A Palestinian was Sunday evening killed by Israeli settlers in the village of Za'tara, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement that Sameh Aqtash, 37, was killed after he was shot with a live bullet during an assault by Israeli settlers and forces in the said village.

Nablus-area villages and towns are currently under massive attacks by Israeli forces and settlers, which resulted so far in killing one Palestinian, injuring more than a 100 and setting fire to dozens of homes, vehicles and structures.

With the killing of Aqtash, the number of Palestinians who have been killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of 2023 rises to 66, including four killed by Israeli settlers' gunfire, 13 children, four elderlies and one prisoner behind Israeli bars.
