Meanwhile, the Israeli forces carried out more raids in Nablus and other nearby villages, in response to Tuesday's shooting.

Jerusalem is considered as a sacred place and is home to Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy sites. However, it is also a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as the capital of its future state.
