Five people were shot dead in separate incidents in Israel between Friday night and early Saturday morning.
Two Palestinian youths were reportedly shot dead in clashes against the IDF on Friday night, according to Palestinian Authority officials.
Near Ramallah, a 17-year-old was shot dead while throwing stones at Border Police officers.
At the same time, Israeli forces shot an 18-year-old Palestinian who attempted to run them over with a vehicle near Nablus. Another person in the vehicle was also injured and was arrested by Israeli forces.
There were no casualties from IDF personnel in either incident.
The IDF stated that the vehicle accelerated towards the soldiers even after they signaled it to stop, Ynet reported. The report also quoted a Palestinian Red Crescent official, who said that Israeli forces "fired more than 40 bullets at the vehicle." Photos of the car after the incident revealed its windshield had been shattered by many bullets.
Another two killed
In yet another incident during the same night, a 19-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman were wounded by gunfire in Jisr e-Zarka, Hebrew media reported. The victims were identified as Muhammed Wal Amash and Rasha Sami Amash.
MDA paramedics arrived at the scene, began treating them, and evacuated them in critical condition to the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera. The two eventually died of their wounds hours later, Hebrew media reported.
Police who arrived at the scene began to search for the suspects who fled and began investigating the incident. Initial conclusions of the investigation determine that the incident derived from a conflict between families, as the two victims were reportedly cousins, according to Walla.
Another dead in an attack in Shuafat
A 40-year-old man was shot in the head on Friday night in the Shuafat neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem, Hebrew media reported.
The report states that the man was shot while trying to break up a fight between two families in the neighborhood.
The man received treatment from medical officials but was eventually pronounced dead. Police began an investigation to find out the circumstances of the incident.
