Palestinian teen killed in Israeli clash

A 15-year-old Palestinian youth was shot dead during a clash with Israeli soldiers on the west bank, according to the Ramallah Ministry of Health.

Six other Palestinians were injured in live ammunition during the clash following a call to protest the settlers’ outpost south of the Palestinian city of Narvs, officials said.

The Israeli army has not yet commented on the incident.

On Thursday, two Palestinian guards were fatally shot in the northern west bank of the Jordan River by members of Israeli special forces.

According to Palestinian news agency Wafa, the two victims were employees of the military intelligence department in the city of Genin.

A third party was also killed.

Israeli security sources said special forces were in Jenin to arrest two fighters in the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad. They are suspected of contributing to the attacks on Israeli soldiers in recent months.

Israeli sources added that one of the suspects was shot dead during the shootout and the second was injured.

Officials speaking on behalf of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas warned against the worsening situation.
