Ramallah – A 16-year-old Palestinian teenager was shot dead on Wednesday night by Israeli soldiers near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, medics and eyewitnesses said.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement that the teenager was killed during clashes between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli soldiers in the village of Oudla, south of Nablus, Xinhua news agency reported.
The ministry said another Palestinian young man was shot and wounded by the soldiers during the same clashes, adding that he is in moderate condition.
Meanwhile, eyewitnesses provided similar information of the incident, saying Nablus and several surrounding villages have been witnessing daily protests and clashes following the Israeli army’s raids on Palestinian homes in the area.
