Israeli soldiers shot and killed, on Tuesday evening, a Palestinian man near Beita Junction, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus. The incident led to protests before the soldiers injured at least 49 Palestinians.

Palestinian sources said the man, Shadi Omar Lutfi Salim, 41, was shot after the soldiers ambushed him at the junction of the town and fired live rounds at him.

They added that the soldiers took the seriously wounded Palestinian away, before declaring that he died from his wounds.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers were hiding in an olive orchard near the road when they ambushed the man and opened fire at him.

The Palestinian oversaw water resources at Beita Town Council. He was heading back home from work when the soldiers shot him.

It is worth mentioning that the soldiers also ambushed and abducted four young men, near Sbeih mountain, and took them to their military post on its top.

The soldiers also fired gas bombs and rubber-coated steel bullets at Palestinians in Beita town park, near Sbeih Mountain, after stopping dozens of residents and cars and forcing them to leave the area.

The attacks led to protests in the area before the soldiers shot and injured 49 Palestinians on Sbeih Mountain near Beita.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Nablus, said the soldiers injured 49 Palestinians, including one, identified as Taha Hamayel, 24, who was shot with a live round in the leg and a rubber-coated steel bullet in the head.

Medics rushed Hamayel to a hospital in Nablus; his condition was described as serious but stable.

Jibril added that most of the injured Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, and received the needed treatment at the scene.

The Israeli military said it was looking into the incident at the entrance to the village of Beita, which is located close to the recently evacuated illegal Israeli outpost of Evyatar.

According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, 43 Palestinians who protested against the outpost were injured over the weekend, nine of them by live fire and 34 by rubber bullets. The IDF said that two soldiers were lightly injured and were evacuated to hospital.

This comes after Mohammad Munir al-Tamimi, 17, who was seriously wounded during clashes in a West Bank village northwest of Ramallah the previous day, succumbed to his wounds overnight into Saturday, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Eyewitnesses said that Israeli troops entered the village of Nabi Saleh and clashes erupted with dozens of young Palestinians.
