Occupied Nablus (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces and settlers on the early morning of Wednesday murdered a 15-year-old Palestinian child and wounded 112 locals of the West Bank village of Beita.
QNN reported said that dozens of locals gathered at Mount Arma this morning to fight back a settlers’ attack that aimed at taking over the area.
The Israeli army stormed the village and used live and rubber-coated metal bullets as well as tear gas canisters against the locals, causing Muhammad Hamayel (15 years old) to be killed in addition to 112 injuries.
The child was shot in his head and sent to a hospital in Nablus before he was announced to be dead.
The Red Crescent said that over 112 injuries were reported during the attack, including 90 with tear gas, 18 with rubber-coated-metal bullets, and one with live rounds.
The Israeli army used a drone to shower locals with intensive tear gas.
Jewish illegal settlers, backed by the Israeli army, have been recently trying to take over Mount Arma, claiming that it is “a Jewish property”.
