The Israeli army shot and seriously wounded a Palestinian man in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Kafr Aqab, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported. The man was transferred to a hospital in Ramallah.

On Tuesday, the ministry reported that one Palestinian was killed and fifty others were wounded during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the West Bank city of Nablus. The clashes broke out while the military was searching for an assailant who killed an Israeli man outside a West Bank settlement on Monday in a stabbing attack.

The military said that clashes broke out between the soldiers and some 500 Palestinians during the raid, adding that rocks, firebombs and explosive devices were hurled at the forces, and that gun fire was also used against the soldiers. According to eye witnesses, the clashes erupted as Israeli forces were pulling out from Nablus.
