The Palestinian News Agency (Wafa) reported that an Israeli soldier "executed a Palestinian youth with live bullets from zero distance" this afternoon, Friday, in the town of Hawara, south of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said that the General Authority for Civil Affairs informed it of the death of a citizen after the occupation forces shot him in Hawara.

A video clip of the incident circulated by Palestinian pages on social networks showed that an Israeli soldier jostled with a Palestinian, before the soldier fired from zero distance at the Palestinian.
