Israeli forces invaded the village of Mothalath south of the city of Jenin in the northern part of the West Bank and killed one child on Thursday morning.

A massive Israeli force invaded the village and attacked and searched scores of houses. Israeli soldiers opened fire randomly at residents' houses and civilians standing on the street.

Medical sources reported that Ahmad Al Assassah, 16, was hit with a live round in the head and died instantly. The sources added another two were injured. They were known as Ahmad Mahmod, 17, and Shauki Assassah, 20.

Soldiers forced families out of their homes during the house to house search campaign the army conducted in the village. Israeli forces left the village after some time, but before leaving they abducted Ahmad Hussien, 26, and took him to an unknown detention camp.

The area of Jenin city Jenin refugee camp and a nearby village was targeted on Wednesday; one Palestinian resistance fighter from Al Aqsa brigades of Fatah was killed during clashes between local resistance fighters and invading Israeli troops in Jenin refugee camp.

With Assassah's death, the number of the Palestinians killed by the Israeli army in the West Bank since the beginning of this week have risen to three.
