A Palestinian has died after being injured by Israeli fire in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli forces opened live fire at the Palestinian, wounding him on Tuesday, Palestinian Al-Aqsa TV reported. The victim has been identified as Azmi Nafaa.

Israeli sources have alleged that the Palestinian ran over four Israeli military personnel members near the city of Nablus before being targeted.

A number of Israelis, one of whom a colonel, were said to be injured in the alleged incident.

Al-Aqsa TV also reported heavy confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli military forces at the Atara checkpoint north of the city of Ramallah, which led to Israelis closing the entrances to Deir Nezam Village.

Also on Tuesday, 45 Israeli settlers entered the al-Aqsa Mosque compound backed by Israeli forces.

More than 90 Palestinians have been killed since the start of October as tensions continue across the occupied territories over increasing attacks by Israeli settlers. Nearly 20 Israelis have also been killed during the period.

The Israeli regime’s August imposition of restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the compound triggered the tensions. The mosque is Islam’s third holiest site after Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina.

Palestinians are also angry at a plan by the Tel Aviv regime to change the status quo of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
