The Palestinian Ministry of Health also confirmed the death, stating that a number of other Palestinians were also injured by bullet fragments, while others suffered from smoke inhalation. 

Local media reported that armed Israeli forces stormed the town using heavy gunfire, with additional reinforcements sent. 

Ahmed Jibril, the director of the Ambulance and Emergency Centre at the Red Crescent in Nablus, also told local media that Israeli forces prevented ambulances from reaching the town where the raid was taking place. 

Israeli forces also killed three Palestinians earlier this week on 19 September in a drone-assisted assault on the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, while another died of his wounds on 20 September.

One Palestinian man was also killed by Israeli forces along the separation fence with the besieged Gaza Strip, Palestinian officials said.

A 19-year-old was also shot by Israeli forces on 20 September during a morning raid on the occupied West Bank city of Jericho. 

The teenager, who has been identified as Dhargham al-Akhras, succumbed to his wounds after the shooting in the Aqbat Jabr camp.

According to local media, armed Israeli forces raided the camp, carried out multiple arrests, and clashed with residents, wounding at least one person as a result of live fire.

This year is shaping up to be one of the bloodiest in the occupied West Bank.

At least 222 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces this year, including 38 children, according to a tally by Middle East Eye.

A total of 185 people have died in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Another 37 people have been killed in the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, Palestinians have killed at least 30 Israelis in the same period, including six children.
