Israeli soldiers shoot dead a Palestinian teenager and wounded two others including an ambulance driver who was providing first aid to another victim in the occupied West Bank.
Palestinian medical sources reported Monday night that one Palestinian teenager was killed and two others were wounded by Israeli military fire near the road that separates between Al Jalazoun refugee camp and Beit El settlement, east of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
The 17-year old youth, Mohammad Nayef, was seriously wounded and was moved to Hadassah hospital in al-Quds. He died of his wounds several hours later, the sources said.
Mohammad is the son of Riyadh Nayef, a Palestinian security official who was assassinated by the Israeli army several years ago.
The Israeli army claims the boy was hurling fire-bombs outside the settlement.
The two other wounded Palestinians are Ali Al Qaisi, shot in his arm, and ambulance driver, Osama Al Najjar, who was wounded in his leg while providing first aid to Mohammad Nayef.
In addition to this incident, according to Palestinian sources Israeli troops kidnapped several Palestinian youth and took them to an unknown destination.
