The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that Ahmad Jamal Mahmoud Munasra, 22, a resident from Wadi Fukin village, in the Bethlehem district, was shot with Israeli live fire in the chest, shoulder, and hand.

The ministry said that Munasra was transferred to the Beit Jala Governmental Hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds.
