Clashes have been on a high level for the past two days in the West Bank. These started on Thursday when an Israeli settler couple were shot dead in their car close to a Nablus settlement.

Another stabbing took place on Sunday night, in which two settlers were killed, and the teen stabber, Muhannad Halabi, was immediately shot dead by IOF.

The next morning (Sunday), another Palestinian student, Fadi Alloun, was shot dead by IOF after settlers started shouting that he was “going to” initiate a stab attack.

IOF have closed down the Old city of Jerusalem and prevented Palestinians from entering it.

Clashes have not stopped in several West Bank cities.
