Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian teenager Thursday in the occupied West Bank and seriously wounded three other Palestinians, the Palestinian health ministry said in a statement.
It did not give the circumstances, but said the shooting happened near the Jelazoun Palestinian refugee camp.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said soldiers shot a number of Palestinians throwing petrol bombs at Beit El settlement, close to Jelazoun, but she could not confirm the death.
“The suspects hurled firebombs towards the community,” and soldiers fired in response, she said. “Hits were confirmed.”
Palestinian health officials named the dead youngster as Mahmud Hattab, 16.
