Fawzi Sabarna, mayor of the village, told Reuters dozens of settlers had entered his village and started shooting at houses on Friday morning, hitting two youths working on land nearby.

Palestinian medics said Fakhri Youssef, 17, was shot in the head and was on a life support machine.

On Thursday, Oday Kaddous, 19, was shot dead near the village of Iraq Burin near Nablus. His cousin Omar Kaddous accused settlers of killing him in an unprovoked attack.
