Israeli troops kill a Palestinian teenager, injure another and kidnap others during invasions targeting West Bank communities. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Israeli soldiers shot and killed, on Tuesday morning, a Palestinian child at the Wad Al-Jouz Junction, near Bani Neim town, east of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The soldiers prevented Palestinian medics from approaching the child, and he bled to death; the Israeli army claimed the child “attempted to stab a soldier.” The Palestinian child has been identified as Issa Tarayra, 16.

Eyewitness said that Tarayra was on his way to Hebron city, and stepped out of a car he was riding after the soldiers stopped dozens of Palestinian cars, and walked towards the soldiers in an attempt to cross on foot, but one of them opened fire towards him and killed him.

The soldiers closed the entire area, declared it a closed military zone, and installed additional roadblocks.
