In an unusual joint Israeli-Palestinian operation, a victim of the violence outside the West Bank village Kusra, was sent by helicopter from the outskirts of Nablus to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Karem hospital for treatment on Sunday evening.

The IDF is investigating the possibility that Halmi Abed Elaziz Sadek Hasan, 27, was one of two Palestinians who were shot with live ammunition by Israeli civilians, during Saturday's clashes between area settlers, Palestinians and Israeli security forces.

A third Palestinian was injured by a rubber bullet from Israeli security forces.
Hasan, 27, was hit in the stomach, rushed to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus, where he was operated on Saturday.

But as his situation deteriorated on Sunday, Palestinian health officials worked with the civil administration to send him to Hadassah Ein Karem.
