Ramallah, 19 Dzulhijjah 1437/21 September 2016 (MINA) – Palestinian Ministry of Health on Tuesday announced the martyrdom of a Palestinian youth who was shot dead by Israeli occupation forces near the city of Al-Khalil.

Israeli sources claimed that the boy was killed after he attempted to stab Israeli soldiers in the area.

The Palestinian Red Cross said that Israeli forces prevented Palestinian medics from transferring Issa Tarayra to a hospital for treatment, leaving him to bleed to death.

Emad Amro, an official from Beni Naeem municipality, told KUNA that the body of 16 year-old boy was put in a plastic bag and taken by an Israeli ambulance.

According to Ma’an, Tarayra is the 230th Palestinians to be killed by Israelis since the beginning of a wave of unrest nearly a year ago across the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel.
