Sixteen-year-old Younis was shot dead by soldiers at the Jbara checkpoint before being transferred to Meir Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Occupied West Bank – The Israeli army shot dead a Palestinian minor after he allegedly drove his car into a military checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank.
An Israeli soldier was injured in Monday’s alleged attack carried out by a minor identified as 16-year-old Mohammad Nidal Younis from the city of Nablus.
He was shot dead by soldiers at the Jbara checkpoint, south of the city of Tulkarem, before being transferred to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba, where he was pronounced dead.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health did not confirm the murder of the teenager or his identity.
Israeli health officials said the 34-year-old injured soldier was in a serious but stable condition with head and chest injuries.
On Saturday night, Israeli forces 25-year-old Palestinian shot dead man Mohammad Salima after carrying out a stabbing attack near the Old City in occupied East Jerusalem.
Footage shot by bystanders appears to be that Israeli police officers continue to shoot Salima from a point while lying on the ground and do not pose a threat, which sharply condemns Palestinian officials and human rights groups, including the United Nations People’s Law Office, which described it as an “execution”.
