Jewish settlers frequently stage attacks on Palestinian towns and farms and their Arab inhabitants across the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Health Ministry in Gaza said Montaser Mohammad Ismael al-Baz, 17, was shot and seriously injured with a live round in the head. ive other Palestinians were shot live ammunition, when the soldiers, stationed in fortified sniper posts hundreds of meters across the border fence, targeted Palestinian protesters in their lands, near the perimeter fence, in central Gaza.

According to Palestinian figures, more than 650,000 Jewish settlers currently live on 196 settlements and more than 200 settler “outposts” scattered throughout the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
