One Palestinian was killed and dozens were injured with live ammunition fired by Israeli occupation forces storming Nablus city, occupied West Bank.
The Palestinian health ministry reported the martyrdom of 16-year-old Ghaith Rafiq Yamin died from critical wounds from a head shot sustained after Israeli occupation forces fired live bullets directly at him at “Qaber Youssef"(Joseph's Tomb) in Nablus.
The photos of Ghaith, a student in the tenth grade from the Abdul Hamid Al-Sayeh School in the Nablus Education, went viral on social media most notably footage of his grieving family saying a final farewell.

In his last post on social media, which tragically reads like a will, Ghaith requested not to be taken to the morgue because he hates feeling cold and to be buried among children so that he won't be lonely.

Confrontations erupted as hundreds of Israeli settlers escorted by Israeli occupation forces violently raided the tomb on Tuesday night.
The Israeli occupation forces along with Israeli settlers used excessive force against the Palestinians not to mention showering them with live bullets and vandalizing a number of vehicles, shops, and private property.
As a result, more than 41 Palestinians were injured by live bullets in the city of Nablus, according to the Palestinian Red Cross.
It is worth mentioning that the Palestinian Red Cross has also reported that even the emergency ambulance crews were directly attacked with gas bombs while transporting one of the injured.
The Israeli occupation has also arrested at least six Palestinians from Husan, Beit Kahil, and Qalqiliya throughout last night.
