Israeli soldiers shot and killed, on Tuesday evening, a Palestinian teen in the al-Fawwar refugee camp, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and injured at least fifty-nine others, including five who suffered serious wounds.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society in Hebron said the soldiers shot Mohammad Yousef Saber Abu Hashhash, 17, with a live round in the chest, causing a very serious injury, and that teen died of his wounds shortly after in a local hospital.  

The Red Crescent added that the soldiers also shot and injured 45 other Palestinians with live fire and rubber-coated steel bullets, including five persons who suffered serious wounds.

Another resident was shot with a live round in the kidney, before he was moved to a hospital in a moderate condition.

Most of the wounded residents were shot with live fire and rubber-coated steel metal bullets in their lower extremities.
