Dozens of masked Israelis youth clashed with Palestinian in the West Bank village of Hawara on Sunday, hours after an Israeli was killed and five others wounded .

The Israelis approached the village and began throwing stones at Palestinian vehicles, lightly wounding a child. The angry youth torched a car and tried to burn down a house, but were stopped after large security forces were deployed in the area.

A Palestinian man and his wife were burned on sunday when Jewish settlers threw fire bombs into their house south of Nablus, part of a series of violent reprisals believed to be in response to the Israeli was killed at Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank city of Nablus.

Medical sources announced that ten of youth were admitted to hospital among them one teenager who sustained critical wounds as settlers shot him in the head.

The Israel Forces closed off the village to traffic, prompting some of the youth to shout: "You helped the murderers. Take off your uniforms and come with us.

According to haaretz,Palestinian security forces shot at three cars that apparently tried to break through a roadblock near Joseph's tomb, according to an initial investigation. Ben-Joseph Livnat, a 25-year-old was killed in the shooting. five other people were wounded, and are in light to serious conditions.

"The main problem is that they [the Israelis] entered the city without coordination," said Jibril al-Bakri, the Palestinian governor of Nablus.

The tomb, which some believe to be the final resting place of the Biblical patriarch Joseph, is located in an area of the West Bank under full Palestinian control.
