He is the second Palestinian killed by Israeli soldiers over the past 24 hours

A Palestinian teen has been killed by Israeli army fire near Bethlehem on Monday as clashes spiked in east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank, Al Arabiya’s correspondent reported.

Abdel Rahman Abdullah, 13, was shot at in the chest during clashes at a refugee camp near Bethlehem, emergency services and police sources told Agence France-Presse.

He is the second Palestinian killed by Israeli soldiers over the past 24 hours.

On Sunday night, an 18-year-old Palestinian was killed during clashes in Tulkarem in the West Bank.

Clashes have spread after two recent attacks killed four Israelis and wounded a two-year-old child.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged "a fight to the death against Palestinian terror" and announced new security measures.
