A young Palestinian man was killed on Thursday in the eastern area of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus after Israeli forces raided the area of Joseph’s Tomb shrine, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
WAFA correspondent said that large forces of the Israeli army stormed the eastern area in order to secure the illegal Jewish settlers’ storming of Joseph’s Tomb shrine, and also closed Amman Street with dirt mounds.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed Bader al-Masri, 19, succumbed to his wounds, while three others were injured by live bullets.

Jibril also said that the occupation forces targeted an ambulance with rubber-coated metal bullets, while it was transporting a patient near the Balata refugee camp.
