RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A 33-year-old Palestinian father succumbed to his wounds, on late Friday, shortly after he was shot and critically injured by Israeli forces in the village of al-Mazraa al-Gharbiya, west of the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

Medical sources confirmed that Othman Ahmad Ali Lidadweh, 33, a father of four children, succumbed to his wounds after he was shot with live ammunition in his upper thigh by Israeli forces in al-Mazraa al-Gharbiya.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that Israeli forces injured another eight other Palestinians and one of them was reported to have suffered serious injuries to the head.

The ministry added that among the eight injured was a journalist, Muhammad Shuraytah, who was shot with a live bullet by Israeli forces. He was reported to be in moderate condition.

Violent clashes broke out among Israeli forces and Palestinians, who were protesting against illegal Israeli settlement activities, in the village.

The ministry said that Israeli forces fired live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets, sound bombs and tear-gas bombs towards the Palestinian protesters, leading to the killing of Lidadweh, eight injured, and dozens suffering from tear-gas inhalation.

Israeli forces also attacked reporters, who were present in the village, with tear-gas bombs and prevented them from covering the clashes.
