Nazeh Darwazi (died 19 April 2003), was a cameraman for the U.S. news agency APTN, who was killed in Nablus in the West Bank, according to an eyewitness, by a bullet in the head fired by an Israeli soldier from a distance of about 20 yards (18 m).

When he was killed he was wearing a yellow jacket marked "press" and was with a group of half a dozen journalists covering clashes between some young Palestinians and Israeli soldiers. Three people filmed the event, including a Reuters cameraman. At first the army claimed they were under attack by armed Palestinians who had been throwing explosives, but witnesses claimed the soldier shot the journalist in cold blood without any exchange of fire. Reporters Without Borders investigated the event and found that the army had not interviewed any eyewitnesses. The soldiers had been questioned, but nobody was punished.
