In video - Palestinian shot dead by Israeli settler, another injured

April 3, 2019 9:45 A.M. (Updated: April 4, 2019 11:57 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was shot and killed by an Israeli settler, while another was injured at the Huwwara checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, on Wednesday, for allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack.

Medical sources reported that the shot Palestinian was taken in critical condition to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva, east of Tel Aviv, in central Israel, where he was pronounced dead.

Sources identified the killed Palestinian as Muhammad Abed al-Fattah, 23, a resident from the northern West Bank district of Salfit.

Local sources said that an Israeli settler, identified as Joshua Sherman, from the illegal settlement of Elon Moreh, northeast of the Nablus district, blocked the road with his vehicle, preventing al-Fattah from crossing the road, and opened fire at him.

However, Hebrew-language news outlets reported that al-Fattah was allegedly in possession of a knife and attempted to carry out a stabbing attack in the area.

Another Palestinian was injured after being struck with a stray bullet fired by Sherman.

The injured Palestinian, identified as Khaled Ruwayja, 22, was transferred to Rafidia Surgical Hospital in Nablus for treatment.

His medical condition was described as moderate.
