Shooting leaves several settlers dead, dozen wounded: Israeli media
Israeli media report that there are numerous casualties among the ranks of illegal Israeli settlers in the aftermath of a shooting in occupied Al-Quds.
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, Israeli media reported on Friday.
"Several Israelis were killed during an attack in Al-Quds, but the exact figures cannot be determined," Israeli Channel 13 reported, noting that the Magen David Adom (the Red Star of David) announced that there were more than five dead, with 12 others wounded.

Israeli Channel 12 described the incident as "gruesome and harsh."
"The shooting tonight happened in two separate areas, and the shooters are currently being chased down," the Israeli broadcaster said. "There are concerns that there will be more areas in which attacks might take place."
Israeli Walla! columnist and military affairs commentator Amir Bukhbut commented on the incident, describing the shooting as "deadly" that brought upon "Israel" a lot of "suffering" and saying it bore many repercussions.
It was reported later on that the shooting's tally increased, reaching eight dead, with 10 injured, two of whom are in critical condition. Certain sources are claiming that the tally has climbed up to 10 dead.
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 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 Palestinian Health Ministry reported that there were 20 injuries as a result of live munition from the Israeli occupation forces, including three civilians in critical condition while adding that there were dozens of suffocations as a result of the IOF raiding the Jenin Governmental Hospital.
The IOF 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.
Ramallah revealed that taking the martyrs that rose on Thursday in Jenin into account, the camp has lost 19 people due to Israeli aggression since the start of the year.
