West Bank: A Palestinian was killed by Israeli soldiers east of Nablus

A young Palestinian was killed by Israeli forces this Sunday evening, near the Beit Furik checkpoint, east of Nablus.


Local sources reported that the Israeli forces opened fire on the young man, Anas Dwikat, from Nablus, near the Beit Furik checkpoint, seriously wounding him. It was later announced that he died as a result of his wounds.


The same sources indicated that the Israeli forces detained the body of dead Dweikat, noting that he was from the town of Rujib.


Before the death of the young man Dweikat, the Israeli forces closed the Beit Furik checkpoint, east of Nablus, in both directions.


The European Union's High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, said on Sunday that Israel cannot defeat Hamas by fighting.


In a speech during his participation in a symposium held on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference in Germany, Borrell stressed the necessity of presenting a future plan for the Palestinian people based on the two-state solution.


Borrell said, "The West Bank is the real obstacle to the two-state solution, knowing that it is boiling over due to the increasing level of violence against the Palestinians since last October 7."
