Israeli Settler Kills Palestinian, Wounds Another during Protest in West Bank

JERUSALEM – A Palestinian man was shot dead on Thursday and another was wounded when an Israeli settler opened fire during a protest held in the occupied district of West Bank, Israeli military sources told EFE.

An Israeli military spokesman told EFE that the demonstration turned into a riot in the village of Huwwara in the northern West Bank district of Nablus, when hundreds of Palestinians threw stones at Israeli vehicles.

After stones were thrown at his car the Israeli settler fired his gun into the air, the spokesman said.

Additionally, the spokesman pointed out that security forces approached the site in order to disperse the protest, noting the incident was being investigated.

According to Ynet news website, the Israeli settler, who claimed that he felt his life was in danger, got out of his car and started shooting, when about 200 Palestinians threw stones at Israeli cars.

Palestinian news agency Maan, which identified the victim as Mutaz Hussien, 23, from the village of Beita in Nablus, said that he died “shortly after sustaining bullet wounds when an Israeli settler opened live ammunition on him during a peaceful solidarity march in the village.”

The wounded was identified as Palestinian journalist Majdi Eshtayya who was transferred to Rafidia hospital in Nablus.
