AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Yousef Fakhri Ikhlil, 17, was pronounced dead in Al-Ahli hospital in Al-Khalil city at a late hour on Friday night after he was hit with a bullet in the head at the hands of Jewish settlers.

Medical sources said that Ikhlil was admitted into intensive care in a very serious condition after he was fatally shot in the head when more than 150 armed Jewish settlers from Bat Ayin settlement attacked Safa village north of Al-Khalil earlier on Friday.

Eyewitnesses said that the settlers fired live bullets at unarmed citizens critically wounding Ikhlil and wounding another youth in his hand.

Israeli sources in the settlement claimed that the attack on the village followed shooting from the village at a group of settlers from Kiryat Arba settlement while picnicking in the area.

A Palestinian young man was killed on Thursday also at the hands of Jewish settlers in Irak Burin village, south of Nablus, in a noticeable increase in settlers’ assaults on Palestinians, their land, farms, and property.
