Israeli forces kill 14-year-old Palestinian near Bethlehem

Ramallah, Israeli forces fatally shot a 14-year-old Palestinian during a dawn raid Monday of a refugee camp near Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

It said troops drove into Dheisheh refugee camp and carried out a search-and-arrest operation, triggering clashes with local residents during which soldiers fired live rounds, tear gas and stun grenades, seriously wounding Omar Lutfi Khamour, who later succumbed to his wounds.

The killing raised to 14 the Palestinian death toll from Israeli fire since the start of the year, including four children.
