Palestinian teen killed in West Bank
Israeli troops killed a Palestinian teenager near the West Bank city of Jenin yesterday, the Palestinian health ministry said, as violence surged in the occupied territory.
Meanwhile, in the southern West Bank, troops made two arrests in the deadly Monday shooting of a settler near the city of Hebron.
"Othman Mohammed Abu Khurog, 17, died after he was shot in the head by the occupation (Israeli forces)," the Palestinian health ministry said.
Abu Khurog was killed when clashes erupted in the small town of Zababdeh, southeast of Jenin, which Israeli forces had entered to make an arrest, the official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.
