Israeli army shoots, kills Palestinian teen during protest
Islam News – “Mohammad Said Hamayel, 15, died in clashes” with Israeli forces near Beita, south of Nablus, the Palestinian Red Crescent said.
The Israeli army shot dead a Palestinian teenager on Friday during clashes in the north of the occupied West Bank, Palestinian medics and the health ministry said, and six others had been wounded by live gunfire.
The teenager’s death comes a day after three Palestinians were killed by Israeli special forces on a mission to arrest suspected “terrorists” in the West Bank.
Violence in the West Bank increased in May, with at least 30 Palestinians killed in clashes with Israeli forces and during alleged attacks.
West Bank villages often hold Friday demonstrations against land confiscation, house demolitions and Israeli settlements, which are deemed illegal under international law.
