Palestinian shot dead by Israeli settler in West Bank

Israeli settlers and Palestinians clash in the northern West Bank

According to the spokesperson, some 20 Israeli settlers were hiking near Qusra, a Palestinian village southeast of the city of Nablus, when the Palestinians attacked them with stones.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, the fresh clashes between Israelis and Palestinians began after a group of settlers tried to enter Qusra.

But the Israeli military claims that Odeh was shot after "throwing stones" and "lightly wounding two settlers", during the confrontation. A video from the scene showed that their exit was blocked by a group of Palestinians.

Israelis from the illegal Yash Kod settlement in the north of the West Bank entered Palestinians' fields near Qusra and attacked 48-year-old Mahmoud Ahmad Zaal Odeh, a Palestinian official who monitors settlements told the Ma'an news agency.

The Israeli army frequently carries out wide-ranging arrest campaigns in the occupied West Bank on the pretext that it is searching for "wanted" Palestinians.

Israeli medics treated him at the scene, but he died from his wounds.

"The detainees have since been referred to investigation by the security forces", the statement read.

The military would not say where the shooter was, saying only that the incident was being investigated.

Parents escorting the children reportedly said at least 30 Palestinian men surrounded them and started throwing rocks. Several isolated hard-line settlements are in the area, situated near Palestinian villages and Nablus.

The child, who gave an on-camera statement that was released by the Samaria Regional Council, said that a second group of Palestinians arrived at the entrance of the cave and helped drive back the initial group that was blocking their exit, until the army arrived. When Mr Odeh refused, one of them shot him, Mr Daghlas added.
