Sunday 14-April-2024


A Palestinian young man was shot and injured by Israeli gunfire on Sunday afternoon after Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed Habla town, south of Qalqilya, in the northern West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that a young man suffered from gunshot injuries in the hand and leg as clashes broke out during the raid.

Another Palestinian was seriously injured after being shot by the IOF in Al-Mughayyir town, east of Ramallah.

The IOF has raided the village since the morning hours, which led to the outbreak of violent confrontations amid heavy use of live ammunition.

Al-Mughayyir has been witnessing a massive settler attack for the third day in a row. At least one Palestinian was killed, and 45 others were injured during the settler attacks.

The settlers also set fire to 16 houses, 60 vehicles, and 15 sheep pens, stole 145 sheep, and slaughtered 31 others.

On the other hand, a group of settlers assaulted a citizen and kidnapped another after violently storming Kafr Malek town, east of Ramallah.

According to the Palestinian health ministry, Israeli forces and settlers have killed at least 464 Palestinians in the West Bank since the start of the war on Gaza in October last year, with the West Bank witnessing an unprecedented wave of settler violence that often takes place in the presence of Israeli soldiers.
