A 32-year-old Israeli man was killed in a shooting attack near the settlement of Hermesh in the northern West Bank on Tuesday morning, the Israeli army said.

The man, later identified as Meir Tamari from Hermesh who was a father of two, was reportedly shot multiple times in his upper body while driving his car on a nearby road, and then made his way to the entrance to the settlement.

Medical emergency services said that Tamari was then evacuated to Hillel Yaffeh Medical Center in Hadera. He was pronounced dead a few hours later.

The Israel Defense Forces is currently searching for the assailants, and have set up barriers in the surrounding area.

Palestinian militants from Tul Karm affiliated with the Fatah's military wing (known as the Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigade) took responsibility for the shooting. "The organization's soldiers carried out a special operation and opened fired directly at a settler vehicle," a statement read. It added that "this operation what preceded it isn't sufficient for revenge, we'll continue to act to avenge the blood of the organization's fighters and the mothers of the martyrs."

Early Tuesday morning an IDF soldier was moderately wounded while the army carried out a series of arrests in the Nur al-Shams refugee camp, east of Tul Karm in the northern West Bank.

Hamas' spokesperson Abdellatif al-Kanou responded to the breaking development, saying the incident is "evidence of the determination of the Palestinian people to continue the fight against the occupation and the damage done to the Al-Aqsa Mosque," ostensibly referring to religious Jewish Israelis and far-right government ministers who frequent the Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa compound, and as recently when National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir paid a visit last week which drew strong rebukes by international actors.

Earlier this month a 39-year-old man was lightly injured in a shooting attack near the northern West Bank settlement of Avnei Hefetz.

Updated: “Israeli Colonizer Killed In A Shooting Near Tulkarem”

Updated: On Tuesday, Israeli sources confirmed that a colonizer succumbed to serious wounds he suffered in a driveby shooting from a Palestinian car near the illegal Hermesh colony near Tulkarem in the northwestern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli, later identified as Meir Tamari, 32, from Hermish, suffered several gunshot wounds and received treatment from Israeli medics who rushed him to a hospital due to his serious wounds, but he succumbed to his serious wounds.

The sources said the shooters fired at least seven live rounds from an M16 rifle and sped towards Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

Israeli soldiers installed many roadblocks in the area and initiated a massive search campaign in the area, looking for the Palestinian car.

The army said a Palestinian driver sped and bypassed a colonialist settlers’ car before firing several live rounds at it and fleeing the scene.

The Al-Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of the Fateh movement, claimed responsibility for the shooting and said its fighters managed to escape unharmed.

It stated the shooting comes in retaliation to the escalating Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, including the ongoing assassinations and killings of fighters and civilians.

The Brigades added that its fighters also exchanged fire with Israeli soldiers who invaded Nur Shams refugee camp at dawn and managed to detonate explosive charges near military vehicles.

On Monday evening, many paramilitary Israeli colonizers invaded Deir Dibwan town, east of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, attacked and injured several Palestinians, caused damage to cars, and burnt crops while Israeli soldiers fired at the Palestinians who tried to defend themselves.

Also, illegal paramilitary colonizers burnt Palestinian palm trees in Burqa town, northwest of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Earlier Monday, Israeli soldiers invaded Jenin city, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, killed an intelligence officer, injured eight Palestinians, one seriously, and abducted six others.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed that the soldiers killed Ashraf Mohammad Amin Ibrahim, 38, after shooting him with two expanding bullets in the chest and the abdomen.

Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, and various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory.”

Dozens of armored military vehicles, including bulldozers, invaded Nur Shams refugee camp east of Tulkarem in the northwestern West Bank and caused serious damage to homes, cars, and street stands, during massive invasions and violent searches of homes.

Media sources said undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated the refugee camp but could not ambush and locate Palestinian resistance fighters before dozens of armored military vehicles invaded it.

The soldiers wired and detonated the main doors of several Palestinian homes before storming them and conducting violent searches, causing serious damage, while military drones flew overhead.

During the violent invasions and searches of homes, the soldiers detained each family in one room of their property and interrogated them while ransacking the properties.

The soldiers also invaded and searched shops, caused damage to street stands after bulldozing them, and deployed sharpshooters on many rooftops before confiscating surveillance recordings and equipment.

The military vehicles also smashed many Palestinian cars parked near several homes in the refugee camp.

Hours after the invasion and the extensive and violent searches of homes and property, the army withdrew without being able to locate and abduct resistance fighters.

Palestinian fighters exchanged fire with the soldiers in several parts of the refugee camp, especially when the soldiers surrounded many homes,
