Nablus /PNN /
A Palestinian child has been shot dead by Israeli forces during a military raid in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
A large unit of Israeli forces broke into the eastern area of Nablus, sparking confrontations with Palestinians, during which the soldiers fired live bullets, sound and gas canisters at citizens, killing Amer Abu Zaytoun, 16, after shooting him in the head.
Israeli forces also detained former prisoner Hasan Arayshi during the raid.
With the Israeli killing of Abu Zaytoun, the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since beginning of 2023 has risen to four.
Two days ago, Adam Ayyad, 15, was shot and killed by Israeli forces with a live bullet in the chest during a military raid in the refugee camp of al-Dheisha, south of the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem.
Earlier this week, Israeli army killed Mohammad Samer Houshieh, 22, after being shot in the chest, and Fouad Mahmoud Abed, 25, after he was shot in the belly and thigh during a raid in the town of Kufr Dan, in the north of the West Bank.
