Ma'an reported on Friday that al-Qatari was shot in the chest. According to Channel 10 news, Israeli troops were responding to what sounded like gunfire in the direction of the settlement.

Palestinians also reported that at least 50 people were injured across the West Bank in a series of clashes with the IDF. Heavy unrest was reported in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to Ma'an.

In the month since hostilities between Israel and Hamas escalated in the Gaza Strip, 15 Palestinians in the West Bank have died in clashes with IDF troops.
