The thirteen-year-old boy Ghassan Gharib Zahran was shot and killed by the Israeli forces in the village of Deir Abu Mash’al in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
A young man and three children were also injured after being shot by Israeli forces in Nablus.

The forces fired live ammunition at several children, shooting and fatally wounding Zahran in his stomach. He was taken to a nearby clinic before being transferred to the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah where he succumbed to his wounds.

Zahran’s death brings the total number of Palestinians killed in the West Bank since October 7, to 572, reported WAFA, including 137 children. This is in addition to about 5,350 injury cases.

In Nablus, the young man and children aged 9, 10, and 13, were injured by shrapnel from Israeli forces who fired live ammunition during a raid on the Askar Camp, east of Nablus on Tuesday, Palestinian media reported.

Earlier on Tuesday, plumes of smoke were seen and gunfire was heard in footage from the Nour al-Shams camps in Tulkarm as resistance fighters clashed with invading occupation forces.

Palestinian news agency, WAFA, said a large number of military vehicles and bulldozers stormed the town, along with low-flying drones.

The occupation forces pushed more of their heavy vehicles to all entrances to the city, specifically at the Jabara military checkpoints in the south, and in Annab military checkpoints in the east, in addition to the Netsani Oz gate west of Tulkarm.

In addition, Israeli forces detained journalists while they were covering the raid in the vicinity of the Al-Younis roundabout in the northern district of the city and confiscated their identity documents.

WAFA said bulldozers destroyed residential property and infrastructure while moving towards the Nour al-Shams camp, specifically on Al-Sikka Street. They also bulldozed infrastructure in the vicinity of the Al-Yunis roundabout in the northern neighborhood of the city.

The occupation forces fired random bullets in the vicinity of the camp, causing a power outage in parts of the camp after one of the electricity transformers supplying it was hit.

Israeli occupation forces detained at least 16 Palestinians, including children and former detainees, from several West Bank areas, on Tuesday.

The Detainees’ and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs Commission and the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society said the total number of arrests since October 7 was about 9,600.
