West Bank, 8 Rabiul Awwal 1436/30 December 2014 (MINA) – Israeli forces have shot at least one Palestinian teenager dead in the occupied West Bank in the Tel Aviv regime’s latest act of aggression against Palestinians.
The teenager was killed in the town of Beit Ummar, located near the city of al-Khalil (Hebron), while two others were injured there by Israeli forces on Monday.
One of the wounded was shot in the head and is said to be in critical condition, Press TV quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The violence came shortly after a young Palestinian was shot to death and another suffered gunshot wounds when Israeli soldiers opened fire on them southeast of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, on Monday.
On December 24, five-year-old Palestinian child, Muhammad Jamal Ubeid, was severely wounded after Israeli forces fired a rubber bullet that hit him in the face, while he was getting out of a school bus in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
The Palestinian Center for Human Rights reported on December 23 that Israeli forces carried out systematic attacks against Palestinians and their properties in the occupied Palestinian territories between December 11 and 17.
The report further revealed that Israeli soldiers used excessive force against peaceful demonstrations organized by Palestinian civilians and international human rights activists in protest at Israel’s settlement activities in the West Bank. (T/P011/P3)
