At the time, the Health Ministry confirmed five were injured and added that two (including Mujahed) suffered life-threatening gunshot wounds to the chest and were rushed to Salfit governmental hospital.

Mujahed was later rushed to the Istishari Arab Hospital in Ramallah due to the seriousness of his injuries, but he succumbed to his wounds.

Local sources said that more than 10 military vehicles stormed the village on Saturday afternoon, leading to massive protests, during which a number of villagers were shot by invading Israeli soldiers.
