Mayor of Nahalin, Subhi Zaidan, told WAFA that an Israeli army force smashed the doors and raided the family home of Nouriddin Mohammad Shakarneh, 20, in the village while opening gunfire and firing stun grenades inside the home, injuring Shakarneh in his pelvis.

Shakarneh was moved to a nearby hospital for treatment where his condition was described as moderate.
