Pathetic VIDEO: Zionist Forces Kill Palestinian Teen in West Bank

Wed Feb 10, 2016 18:10:46

Palestinian health officials have announced the martyrdom of a Palestinian teenager who was shot dead by Zionist forces during clashes in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

According to medical sources, the 16-year-old youth, identified as Omar Madi, was shot in the chest on Wednesday in al-Arroub refugee camp located north of al-Khalil (Hebron), Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported.

The clashes erupted after Zionist soldiers "spotted a number of boys throwing stones at Zionist vehicles at route 60 near al-Arroub refugee camp," the agency quoted an Israeli army spokesman as saying.

"The soldiers responded with riot dispersal means and shot one of the demonstrators with live fire, the spokesman added."

Locals said Israeli forces used tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and live fire during clashes in the camp.

The teen was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

Al-Arroub refugee camp lies along Route 60, a major West Bank road that illegal Zionist settlers regularly use to get access to a number of illegal settlements in al-Khalil. The site has seen frequent clashes between Palestinians and Zionist forces over the past several months.

On February 5, Israeli soldiers killed a 14-year-old Palestinian and detained another along the route, accusing the pair of trying to hurl Molotov cocktails at passing cars.

Al-Khalil along with the towns and villages in its vicinity has been a frequent scene of skirmishes since a fresh wave of unrest began in the occupied Palestinian territories early October 2015. The clashes broke out after Palestinians protested plans by Israelis to change the status quo of the al-Aqsa Mosque and its surrounding compound, a highly revered place for the Muslims across the world.

More than 170 Palestinians have been killed and hundreds more injured in the clashes across the West Bank, Gaza and East al-Quds (Jerusalem), reported by Press TV.
