Palestine: Palestinian shot dead by Israeli forces in West Bank

ANKARA (AA) : A young Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli forces in a raid in the occupied West Bank on Monday, according to the Health Ministry.

A ministry statement said Dirar al-Kafrini, 17, was  shot with an expanding bullet in the shoulder, and admitted to hospital in Jenin city but later succumbed to his wounds.

The Health Ministry stated that the expanding bullet caused serious injuries, including multiorgan damage, and severe internal bleeding, instantly killing Dirar.

Media sources in Jenin said undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated the refugee camp from several directions before armored military vehicles, including a bulldozer, invaded it, leading to protests.

They added that the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the Palestinians while a military helicopter hovered overhead.

Eyewitnesses said al-Kafrini was shot and injured when Israeli forces raided the Jenin refugee camp, triggering clashes with angry Palestinians during which Israeli forces used live bullets, tear gas canisters and stun grenades.

Two Palestinians, including former detainee Bassam al-Sa’di, were detained in the raid, witnesses said.
