Second Palestinian Dies after Tulkarem Shooting

A teenager identified as Naji al-Balbisi, 18, died after being shot by Israeli forces during clashes near Tulkarem late Wednesday according to Fars News Agency.

A Ma'an reporter said that the Israeli occupation forces kept the body of al-Balbisi for several hours, and then at 4 a.m they handed the body to a Red Crescent ambulance.
The teenager was the second to die after Israeli soldiers shot and killed a youth late Wednesday near a checkpoint in the Tulkarem area of the occupied West Bank, security officials said.
Soldiers in the area opened fire at Amer Nassar, 17, killing him instantly.
Nearly 1,000 people turned out on the streets of Tulkarem in the aftermath. Mourners carried the youth's body as the crowd chanted slogans condemning the attack, a correspondent observed.
The incident came as clashes broke out in the West Bank between Israeli occupation forces  and Palestinians protesting over the death of a prisoner serving a life sentence in an Israeli jail.
Maisara Abu Hamdiyeh was diagnosed with throat cancer and died after serving 10 years of his sentence.
The Palestinian Authority has accused Israel of medical negligence.
