Renewed clashes between settlers, Palestinians following fatal shooting

Renewed clashes between settlers, Palestinians following fatal shooting

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the 12 mortar shells launched, which the Israeli military said targeted a military post near where a construction crew was working on "important security infrastructure" along the border.

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.

Yesh Din human rights organization said the hikers came from the nearby illegal Esh Kodesh outpost and entered Palestinian farmland outside Qusra. Two settlers were slightly wounded.

"One of the rioters was hit by gunfire", the statement added.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the man who was killed, 48-year-old Mahmoud Zael Oudeh, was shot while tending to his land.

A Palestinian man was shot dead amid a rock-throwing assault on Jewish children hiking in the West Bank.

The Palestinian Maan news agency, citing a local official, reported on Thursday that settlers attempted to raid Odeh's land and that he was shot in the chest as he attempted to prevent their entry.

Israeli medics treated him at the scene, but he died from his wounds. "Our lives were in danger, as [the Palestinians] threw rocks and boulders at us", he said. Then, a group of Palestinians gathered around them, blocking them inside a cave and beating them. Israel says a lot of them were attackers and that others died in clashes with Israeli forces.

Despite being subject to invasion, blockade and Israel's ongoing policy of forced migration, the Palestinian people have continued their struggle for an independent state comprising the Gaza Strip (currently under a crippling blockade) and the West Bank (still under Israeli occupation) with West Jerusalem as its capital.
