Local sources said fierce clashes broke out between dozens of Palestinians and Israeli soldiers as dozens of Israeli settlers protected by the soldiers visited Joseph’s Tomb, a holy site on the outskirts of Nablus.

Palestinian eyewitnesses said dozens of Palestinians burned tires and threw rocks and bottle bombs at the Israeli soldiers and settlers, adding that the soldiers responded, killing the Palestinian teenager and wounding four others.

Meanwhile, eyewitnesses said Israeli soldiers and armed Palestinians exchanged fire near the grave. No injuries were reported.

There has been no response from the Israeli authorities to the death of the victim; however, the Israeli media confirmed that the Israeli settlers arrived at the tomb under the heavy protection of the Israeli soldiers.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army said Palestinians in Jenin, a city in the northern West Bank, held the body of an Israeli teenager who died Tuesday night in a car accident near Jenin.

The teenager was identified by Israeli media as Tiran Ferro, an 18-year-old high school student and a Druze citizen of Israel. His uncle, Edi Ferro, told N12 TV News that Ferro traveled to a car shop in Jenin with his cousin to fix a car.

While in the West Bank, the two were involved in a car accident and were evacuated to a local hospital for medical treatment, the army said. Later, “the body was taken from Jenin hospital,” the army added.

Later that morning, the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Israel’s military liaison with the Palestinians, announced measures to pressure the Palestinians to return the body.

The Gilboa crossing and Salem crossing, the two main passages between the northern West Bank and Israel, will be closed until the body is released, the office said in a statement. The move was decided after “a security assessment” with Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz, according to the statement.

Since March, the Israeli army has been carrying out daily raids against Palestinian towns and cities, mainly in the Jenin and Nablus areas of the northern West Bank.

According to Palestinian figures, more than 130 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of January, while 29 Israelis were killed in a series of attacks carried out by Palestinians in Israel and the West Bank. ■
