The young man was shot in the head and then evacuated to Al Najah Hospital, where he died as a result of his injuries, reports the Times of Israel.

Israeli forces have fired bullets and tear gas, according to the Palestinian agency WAFA, while the Israeli army has disproved the allegations by alleging that the forces responded to violent clashes near the Eviatar outpost, where hundreds of Palestinians have gathered Tires burned and officials pelted with stones.

In addition, the Israeli security forces have confirmed that they have received the information about the death of the young man and that they have started an investigation to determine the cause of death. Another eight people were arrested during Friday’s rioting, while 46 people reported difficulty breathing after using tear gas.

In recent months, residents of Beita in neighboring Eviatar have protested over the establishment of an outpost in allegedly Palestinian territory.

According to the WAFA, clashes broke out on this Friday in various parts of the West Bank, which led to protests in the villages of Kafr Qaddoum, Birin, Susiya and Deir al Hatb, among others.

The clashes between Hamas and Israel, last escalating in May, lasted 11 days and left more than 250 Palestinians and 12 dead in Israel and more than 20 Palestinians killed by Israeli security forces in the West Bank.

Exactly this Friday, before the UN General Assembly, the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, called on the UN Secretary General António Guterres to convene a peace conference to discuss the situation in the Middle East and give Israel a year to break the boundaries of the hypothetical two Redefine states based on pre-1967 divisions.
