One Palestinian was killed and at least five others were critically injured by live fire on Tuesday in the West Bank city of Nablus as the Israel Defense Force (IDF) carried out raids in pursuit of the teen, who has been identified by Palestinian media outlets as Abed al-Karim Assi.

The Palestinian suspect in the murder of a rabbi on 9 January was shot dead on Tuesday in a pre-dawn raid hours after another Israeli was killed in a stabbing in the West Bank.

The identity of the dead man did not match that of the suspect given by Israeli authorities as the stabber.
