Israeli media claimed that "a suspect was seen on the settlement’s surveillance cameras approaching Kedumim’s settlement at around 11:50 p.m."
The Israeli media confirmed that "there were no casualties."
A video showing the Israeli occupation forces shooting the Palestinian youth in cold blood went viral on social media.

The killing of Karam comes shortly after Israeli media quoted a spokesperson for the Israeli occupation police as saying that those who have a gun permit should carry their weapons on them.
Two illegal Israeli settlers were seriously wounded during a shooting in occupied Al-Quds, Al Mayadeen correspondent reported on Saturday, noting that the Israeli occupation police dispatched a large number of officers to the scene.
The Silwan shooting comes less than a day after several illegal Israeli settlers were killed and a dozen others were wounded in the aftermath of a shooting that took place in Nabi Yaqub, occupied Al-Quds.
At the time, Israeli Channel 12 military correspondent Nir Dvori said the shooting in Al-Quds "may be related to what happened in Jenin - an act of retaliation."
The shootings come in retaliation to the Jenin massacre committed by Israeli occupation forces. The IOF raided the Jenin camp in occupied Palestine's West Bank early on Thursday morning, leaving residents and popular resistance groups with no choice but to defend themselves and confront the occupation forces.
The number of martyrs killed in the raid rose to 10, including 61-year-old elderly Palestinian woman Majeda Obeid. The Palestinian Health Ministry reported that there were several injuries as a result of live munition from the Israeli occupation forces while adding that there were dozens of suffocations as a result of the IOF raiding the Jenin Governmental Hospital.

The IOF even prevented ambulance crews from accessing the Jenin Camp, opening fire directly on the emergency vehicles, the Health Ministry said. Meanwhile, photos and videos taken in the camp showed the level of destruction and havoc that the IOF caused all over the refugee camp.
