According to local sources, Israeli forces shot and injured two Palestinians, who were passing by near the checkpoint on a motorcycle.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) identified the killed Palestinian as Abdullah Faysal Towalba, 21, and succumbed to his injuries at the Jenin governmental hospital.

PRCS confirmed that Towalba was shot in the head and several times in his feet.
