Israeli soldiers have killed a Palestinian teenage boy during clashes near the West Bank city of al Khalil (Hebron).

Palestinian medics say forensics confirmed that Muatazz Sharawna, 19, was shot with a "dum-dum" bullet, putting to rest speculation earlier on the young man's cause of death.

The Palestinian youth was killed when Israeli forces opened fire during clashes in the Dura city in the southern West Bank district of al-Khalil.

Earlier, a Palestinian security source had said Sharawnah was struck "deliberately" by a military vehicle.

The Palestinian teenager was knocked down and killed by an Israeli military jeep during overnight clashes in a village in the southern West Bank, Palestinian police and witnesses said Tuesday.
