Palestinian seriously injured in clashes with Israeli forces near Nablus

NABLUS, December 4, 2017 (WAFA) – A Palestinian was seriously injured by Israeli forces during clashes near the village of Qusra, to the south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to local and medical sources.

Ibrahim Wadi, a local activist, told WAFA that clashes erupted between Israeli forces and villagers after settlers came to the village and provoked the residents.

Soldiers deployed in the area to provide protection to the setters and fired live ammunition and teargas canisters to disperse the villagers, injuring one in the back with live fire and causing various suffocation cases.

The Ministry of Health said the injured Palestinian, who was not identified, was brought to Rafidya hospital in Nablus in serious but stable condition and was admitted to the operating room. It said he was shot in the chest.

On Thursday, a settler shot and killed Mahmoud Zaal Odeh, 46, while he was working in his land near the village.
