Israeli forces shot a 14-year-old Palestinian boy with a live bullet on Wednesday, in the Arroub refugee camp, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Local sources told WAFA that Palestinian residents clashed with Israeli soldiers stationed at the entrance to the camp. The soldiers fired tear gas and opened live fire at the youths injuring one in the leg.

He was taken to the hospital where his injury was described as moderate.

Since January 1, Israeli forces killed three Palestinians, including a 15-year-old child, in the occupied West Bank.
