Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Palestinian health officials say a 22-year-old man wounded in clashes with the Israeli army in the West Bank city of Nablus last night succumbed to his wounds.

According to the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry, Muhammed Abu Kishk was shot and seriously hurt during the clash.

Israeli troops had entered the West Bank city to secure a visit of Jewish worshipers to the Joseph’s Tomb holy site on the outskirts of Nablus.

A Palestinian teenager was also killed during the clash.

Joseph’s Tomb is located inside Area A of the West Bank, which is officially under complete PA control, though the Israeli military regularly enters despite Palestinian opposition.
