Palestinian sources reported that a settler shot dead the Palestinian teen Karam Salman, 18, from Nablus, near the occupied West Bank city of Qalqilia.
The sources added the incident took place near the Kedomim Israeli settlement built in the Palestinian-owned lands in Qalqilia.
In addition, local sources said that Israeli settlers invaded the home of the slain Palestinian Salman after killing him.
The Palestinian national and Islamic forces mourned Salman via microphones in the town’s mosque in the middle of the last night.
It’s worth mentioning that Israeli settlers killed another Palestinian youth near the Kedomin settlement several days ago. He was identified as Aref Al-lahlouh.
Several days ago, another settler killed Tareq Maali, 42, after shooting him in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
Israeli settlers, protected and supported by the Israeli new government, escalated violence in the occupied West Bank.
This came two days ago after Itamar Ben-Gvir, the newly appointed Israel’s security minister, called for arming the Israeli settlers to carry out more attacks against Palestinians.
Currently, about 600,000 Israeli settlers live in over 230 illegal settlements built since 1967 in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
