On Thursday, a 48-year-old Palestinian man was killed by a Jewish settler near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to Palestinian officials.
“Mahmoud Ouda was shot in the chest while working his land in the village of Kasra near Nablus,” Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official in charge of settlement affairs, told Anadolu Agency late Thursday.
“He was immediately rushed to a Nablus hospital, where he was soon pronounced dead,” Daghlas said, adding that the Israeli army was still holding the body of the slain man.
The following day, thousands of Palestinians performed Friday prayers on a tract of agricultural land on which Ouda was killed.
A large contingent of Israeli soldiers arrived in the area shortly afterward and dispersed Palestinian worshippers with copious amounts of teargas.
No injuries have been reported.
