Palestinian Youth Shot Dead

Israeli soldiers have shot a Palestinian youth dead outside a West Bank refugee camp near the town of Ramallah.

Palestinian police identified the teenager as Muhammad Nayif on Tuesday.

Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Centre confirmed the youngster had died of gunshot wounds.

Medical sources at the Jalazun refugee camp, which backs on to the illegal Beit El settlement, said three youths and an ambulance driver were also injured in the incident on Monday night.

Israeli occupation forces said Nayif was shot while throwing stones and a Molotov cocktail at soldiers.

However, witnesses told police that stones were thrown only after the boy was shot.
