Israeli soldiers shot and killed, on Thursday evening, a Palestinian child at the entrance of Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Palestinian medical sources said the slain child has been identified as Khaled Bahar Ahmad Bahar, 15.

They stated that the child was shot in the chest, and bled to death after the army closed the area and delayed a Red Crescent ambulance that was rushing to the scene.

A medic who was examining the body of the slain child said in a video recording while examining the body:

“A gunshot wound in the chest, the bullet entered from his chest and exited through his back – when we arrived the child has already bled to death, we tried to resuscitate him, but we was dead; his heart and lungs had already ceased to function. We arrived here before the army doctor, and ambulance arrived…”

On Thursday at dawn, Palestinian medical sources at the al-Makassed hospital, in occupied East Jerusalem, has reported that a young man, identified as Mohammad Jamal Jouda, 23 died from very serious wounds he suffered in 2007, after undercover Israeli soldiers shot him with live fire, in Ramallah, in central West Bank.

On Wednesday afternoon, the soldiers shot and killed a young Palestinian woman at the Za’tara military roadblock, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, after she reportedly attempted to stab soldiers manning the roadblock.
