Palestinian shot dead by Israelis in Nablus


A Palestinian man was shot dead this morning when Israeli forces in the reoccupied West Bank city of Nablus opened fire on a crowd of young people throwing stones at the army.

Mr Jamal Zabbaro (20), was hit in the head when Israeli forces opened fire to disperse stone throwers in the centre of the city, reoccupied since June like almost the entire West Bank, Palestinian security officials and medics said.

An Israeli military source said that Israeli border policemen had opened fire and hit a Palestinian man who threw a petrol bomb at them, but could not confirm if he was dead.
