Eyewitnesses from the town stated that "the child Ghoneim was surprised by the presence of the Israeli occupation forces in the alleys of the town and tried to take shelter in the parking garage of one of the houses, but the occupation forces fired live bullets at him and executed him."
Dozens of civilians were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets, and others suffocated from tear gas while repelling the attacks of the Israeli occupation forces in the village of Beit Dajan, east of Nablus, and the town of Beita to the south.
