Israel troops ‘kill Palestinian teen’ in West Bank

A Palestinian teenager was killed by the Israeli army near the separation barrier, close to Al-Ramadin village

Published: Updated:

Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian teenager in the southern West Bank on Wednesday, a Palestinian security source told AFP.

“Yussef Sami Shawamreh, 15, was killed by the Israeli army near the separation barrier, close to Al-Ramadin village,” the source said, indicating that the body was still with the army.

He had no further details, and there was no immediate comment from the military, which said it was looking into the report.

Al-Ramadin is located on the south-western edge of the West Bank, very close to Israel's vast separation barrier.
