A 19-year-old youth, who was identified as Qosai Jammal Mi’tan, was shot in the neck and critically injured during the attack. He succumbed to his serious wounds shortly after reaching the hospital in Ramallah.
Two other youths were injured after being struck with rocks thrown by the settlers. During the attack, the settler gangs set fire to two Palestinian vehicles.
The settlers also brought their sheep to a plot of land there in an apparent attempt to seize it for the benefit of establishing a pastoral outpost.
