Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Wednesday, November 25, 2015.
Two Palestinians die after being shot by Israeli soldiers in two separate attacks in the West Bank. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
A 16-year-old Palestinian shot by Israeli forces, during clashes two weeks ago, succumbed to his wounds on Wednesday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.
The ministry said doctors failed to save the life of Ibrahim Dawood, after the teen was shot in the heart by Israeli troops during Ramallah clashes, two weeks ago.
Dawood, from Deer Ghassan village near the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, is the second Palestinian teen to lose their life on Wednesday.
Earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed Muhammad Shubaki, a 19-year-old student, after the teen stabbed an Israeli soldier near al-Fawwar refugee camp, in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health told local news agency that Shubaki was shot on scene and evacuated to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem in critical condition, where he later died.
Israeli emergency service Magen David Adom said the Israeli soldier, 20, was left in severe condition and transferred to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
At least 97 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis since the beginning of October, 24 of whom were minors. While Israel alleged many of those were attempting to attack Israelis when they were shot, Palestinians and rights groups have disputed Israel’s version of events in a number of cases.
In other news , Israeli soldiers invaded, earlier Wednesday, several Palestinian homes and searched them, in different parts of occupied Jerusalem, and kidnapped seven Palestinians, including five children.
In the old city of Jerusalem, Israeli settlers and rabbis, on Wednesday, broke into the courtyards of al-Aqsa Mosque compound fueling tension at the site.
Moreover, at least nine Palestinians, including five children, have been kidnapped, earlier on Wednesday, after Israeli soldiers invaded the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and a number of nearby communities.
