The settlers descended from an illegal settlement near the Palestinian village of Qusra, in the outskirts of the West Bank city of Nablus. In an unrelated incident earlier, a Jewish West Bank settler fatally shot a 47-year-old Palestinian villager in a clash that occurred under disputed circumstances. From conversations with five witnesses to the incident, two soldiers and three settlers, Haaretz has learned that dozens of Palestinians surrounded a group of Israeli youths hiking in the area and threw rocks at them.

Police confirmed on Friday that they are investigating two Israeli settlers on suspicion of causing the death by negligence of a Palestinian man was shot dead in the West Bank on Thursday.

The Palestinian Maan news agency, citing a local official, reported on Thursday that settlers attempted to raid Odeh's land and that he was shot in the chest as he attempted to prevent their entry.

Palestinian sources identified the dead man as Mahmoud Odeh, 48, a farmer from Qusra.

Israeli medics treated him at the scene, but he died from his wounds. "IDF forces arrived at the site and rescued all the hikers".
