Radhi Abu Fakhida, head of the village council of Ras Karkar, west of Ramallah, told Anadolu Agency that the Palestinian Civil Liaison Authority, a Palestinian body for communication with Israeli authorities, informed the family of a young man named Khaled Nofal that he had been martyred.

He said the body of the martyr was in the Israeli occupation authorities' custody.

Eyewitnesses told Anadolu Agency that Nofal was killed near an Israeli settlement, located on Raisan Mountain.
