A Palestinian was killed and two others were injured by Israeli army gunfire during its incursion into the town of Beit Furik, east of Nablus in the northern West Bank, on Saturday evening.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society stated in a brief statement that its ambulance crew transferred a 15-year-old boy with a live bullet wound to the chest during clashes in Beit Furik to the hospital.

The society noted its crews initially performed cardiac and pulmonary resuscitation on the injured, but later announced his death at Rafidia Hospital.

In a separate statement, the society reported that its teams also transferred to the hospital a 16-year-old youth with a live bullet wound in the leg, and a 45-year-old man with a live bullet wound in the thigh.

Tensions have been running high across the West Bank since Israel launched a deadly military offensive against the Gaza Strip after an attack by the Hamas group on Oct. 7, 2023.

At least 547 Palestinians have since been killed and nearly 5,200 others injured by Israeli army fire in the occupied territory since Oct. 7, according to the Health Ministry.

Israel stands accused of “genocide” at the International Court of Justice, which in its latest ruling has ordered Tel Aviv to immediately halt its military operation in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, where over a million Palestinians had sought refuge from the war before it was invaded on May 6.
