“Israeli” army shot dead Palestinian teen in West Bank Featured

A young Palestinian boy Sunday succumbed to injuries sustained from “Israeli” army fire in the occupied West Bank a day earlier, according to a local medic.

On Friday, Kamel Alawneh, 19, was shot in the abdomen by “Israeli” forces in the town of Jaba' near the city of Jenin.

"He breathed his last breath on Saturday," Jani Abu Gokha, the director of Ibn Sina Hospital in Jenin, said in a brief statement.

Alawneh's brother was killed by “Israeli” forces in 2003, according to the state news agency Wafa. “Israel” has also imprisoned his father.

According to Palestinian figures, at least 70 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army fire since the beginning of this year./agencies
