Thirteen-year old Palestinian said shot dead by IDF in clashes near Nablus

Palestinian health officials said that a 13-year-old Palestinian boy was shot dead by Israeli forces near Nablus Friday afternoon.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the boy arrived at a hospital in Nablus with gunshot wounds to the stomach. The ministry said he died despite the efforts of the medical staff.

Local Palestinian media identified the 13-year-old as Muhammad Daadas. Clashes took place between the Israeli forces and Palestinians in the village of Deir al-Hatab, east of Nablus, before Da’dis was killed.

The Israeli military said its forces responded to riots near the nearby Israeli settlement of Elon Moreh.

During the unrest, the demonstrators threw stones at the occupation soldiers. The forces responded with riot dispersal means and live ammunition,” an IDF spokesperson said.

The army said it was “checking” reports of Palestinian deaths.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said that 71 people were injured in the clashes, most of them from the effects of inhaling tear gas.

Palestinian reports stated that the demonstrators were protesting against Israeli settlements and that the forces used tear gas, sound bombs and live fire to disperse the demonstrators.

Two more Palestinians were injured on Friday in clashes in Beita, another West Bank village where local residents have been demonstrating for months against the establishment of an illegal outpost.

Hamas mourned the 13-year-old, describing his death as a “war crime.”

“This blood will be the fuel for our people’s revolution, which will not subside until it achieves its goals,” said Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem.

The clashes come days after Israel announced that it would present plans to build an additional 3,000 homes for Jewish settlers in the West Bank, despite international criticism. Israel has also submitted plans to build about 1,300 homes for Palestinians in the West Bank.

Settlement housing, the first of its kind since US President Joe Biden took office, has drawn widespread condemnation in the international community. Many view Israeli construction in the West Bank as a serious obstacle to the establishment of a Palestinian state.

“We are deeply concerned about the Israeli government’s plan to advance thousands of settlement units on Wednesday, many of them deep in the West Bank,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters last Tuesday.

The construction of settlements has also split the diverse and fragile coalition that currently governs Israel. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, a former leader of the settlement movement, retains power with the left-wing Meretz and Labor and Arab parties, which vehemently oppose the settlements.
