On Wednesday dawn, Israeli soldiers killed a child and injured 32 Palestinians, one seriously, in addition to causing dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation, during protests that took place after the army accompanied dozens of colonizers into Nablus in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed that the soldiers killed a child, Ahmad Amjad Shehada, 16, after shooting him with a live round in the heart.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said the soldiers also shot ten Palestinians with live fire, including one who suffered a serious gunshot injury to the abdomen.

Jibril added that the soldiers shot twenty-two Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets, three with shrapnel from live rounds, and seventy-five who suffered the severe effects of tear gas inhalation. In addition, one Palestinian was struck with a concussion grenade in the head.

The soldiers also fired several live rounds at a PRCS ambulance while trying to reach wounded Palestinians.

The invasion was carried out by dozens of military vehicles, including at least one armored bulldozer, and targeted the eastern area of Nablus to allow illegal colonizers to tour Joseph Tomb, leading to massive protests, before the soldiers fired dozens of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers killed 200 Palestinians, including 57 children, since the beginning of this year and added that 52 of the slain Palestinians are from the Gaza Strip.

Joseph, the patriarch, is revered by Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Samaritans alike; however, the Israeli military allows Jews to visit as part of organized pilgrimages, despite the site being in Area A, where the PA has full control and prohibits Muslims from worshiping at the site.

Ultra-orthodox and nationalist Jews regularly try to visit the shrine without approval, as many Jews believe the tomb to be the final resting place of the biblical figure in the Old Testament.

Palestinians believe that Joseph’s Tomb is the funerary monument to Sheikh Yousif Dweikat, a local religious figure.

A 16-year-old Palestinian was among those killed by Israeli troops during clashes in Nablus on Wednesday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

The teenager, Ahmed Shahada, was shot in the chest by Israeli forces who had entered the northern West Bank city near Joseph's Tomb, according to Palestinian reports.

Four others were wounded during the incident, including a critically injured Palestinian who was shot in the stomach and taken to Rafidia Hospital.

The Israeli military, which is working to secure the coordinated entry of Israeli citizens into the Joseph's Tomb complex, said that its security forces were responding to armed men in the area.

Ten Palestinians were wounded by live gunfire during the clashes, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent, with six of those hospitalized in moderate and light conditions.

Additionally, 22 people were wounded by rubber bullets and other crowd dispersal methods; three were also injured by shrapnel and 175 suffered from tear gas inhalation, the Palestinian Red Crescent said.
