Palestine: Israeli forces killed a Palestinian teen, injured two in West Bank

Palestine (Imemc and Agencies): Israeli forces shot and killed a 15-year-old boy on Thursday and seriously wounded two Palestinians, including a child who suffered serious wounds, in Azzoun town, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Local media sources said several army jeeps invaded the town, leading to protests, and fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that the soldiers killed Mohammad Nidal Salim, 15, after shooting him with live rounds in the back.

The Health Ministry added that the soldiers shot another child in the chest, causing life-threatening wounds, and moderately injured a young man in the arm.

In a Facebook post, Mohamamd’s uncle, Reyad Saleem, said his nephew was named after his cousin, Mohammad Nizar Saleem, who was also a child when Israeli soldiers killed him on March 14, 2003.

On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers killed Mahmoud Jamal Hasan Hamdan, 22, in the Aqabat Jaber refugee camp in Jericho, in the northeastern West Bank.

Earlier on Monday, two Israeli settlers were killed in a shooting in Huwwara near Nablus.

On Sunday, a Palestinian civilian was killed by Israeli soldiers while in his home in Za’tara village. Sameh Aqtash, who was murdered by Israeli forces Sunday, was in Turkey two weeks before, volunteering with a rescue team to save lives after the earthquake.

On February 23, 2023, Israeli soldiers killed Mohammad Nabil Fawzi Abu Sabah, 29, In Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

The day before Mohammad’s death, Israeli soldiers killed eleven Palestinians, injured more than 102, six seriously, and caused more than  250 Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation and other minor wounds.

This brings up the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli occupation forces and settlers since the beginning of the year to 68, including 14 children and four elderly, according to MoH figures in occupied territories.
