On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers killed one Palestinian and injured several others during protests that occurred at the entrance of the Al-Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers shot Osama Mahmoud Adawi, 18, with a live round in the abdomen area, causing severe bleeding and internal organ damage.

The Health Ministry added that Osama was rushed to a clinic in the town; however, his heart stopped, and the doctors revived him before rushing him to Bethlehem Arab Society Hospital in Beit Jala, near Bethlehem.

The Health Ministry later confirmed that the young man succumbed to his serious wounds at the hospital despite all efforts to save his life.

The soldiers also injured several other Palestinians in the refugee camp; some were shot with live fire and rubber-coated steel bullets, and many suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
