Israeli forces kill Palestinian youth in West Bank

A Palestinian youth was shot dead by Israeli forces during an overnight raid in the occupied West Bank on Sunday.

A source at the Jenin Government Hospital told Anadolu Agency the youth had already died when he arrived at the hospital.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said they opened fire during an operation in the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank after they were attacked with firebombs.

There were no injuries among Israeli troops and no arrests were made.

According to Palestinian figures, almost 255 Palestinians have been killed since the current uptick in Israeli-Palestinian violence began in late 2015.

Israel, for its part, says 42 Israelis have been killed in attacks by Palestinians over the same period.
