An Israeli settler has killed a young Palestinian man and injured a journalist in the northern part of the occupied West Bank during a march in solidarity with hundreds of Palestinians hunger-striking inmates in Israeli jails.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that 23-year-old Mutaz Hussien Hilal Bani Shamsa succumbed to his wounds shortly after the unidentified settler stepped out of his car and opened live fire on him near the town of Huwwarah, located 9 kilometers south of Nablus, on Thursday afternoon.

Palestinian journalist, Majdi Eshtayya, was also injured during the shooting and was transferred to Rafidia Hospital, where doctors described his gunshot wounds as moderate.

Witnesses, requesting anonymity, said Israeli forces were quickly deployed in the area, which resulted in skirmishes between locals and Israeli forces. There were no immediate reports of casualties or detentions.

Israeli authorities later sealed off Huwwarah, preventing cars from entering or getting out of the town.
