The UN’s Mideast envoy called the death of a Palestinian in West Bank clashes with Israeli settlers “shocking and unacceptable.”

Nikolay Mladenov on Sunday called on Israel to “put an end to settler violence and bring those responsible to justice,” AP reported.

Hamdi Naasan, 38, was killed Saturday and six others were injured, one in serious condition, at Al-Mughayyir village close to Ramallah.

The official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported settlers from a nearby outpost had entered the village, prompting confrontations with local residents before the Israeli military “stormed the village” and fired at the people.

At least 24 other Palestinians were killed and wounded by gunfire, including 14 minors, in Gaza protests.

At least 245 Palestinians have been killed in the March of Return rallies in Gaza since March 2018, including two journalists and three medics, and thousands have been wounded.

Another Palestinian was killed Friday by Israeli soldiers in a separate incident in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.
