A Palestinian youth has died after being left to bleed by Israeli forces who shot him with live ammunition in Hebron (Al Khalil), while fierce clashes erupted between resistance fighters and troops who stormed a town north of Jenin in the occupied West Bank.

Majd Shaher ‘Arameen, 14, was shot by Israeli forces near the town of Sa’ir, north-east of Hebron on Sunday evening, according to the official Palestinian news agency, WAFA, citing the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

Israeli forces then prevented the Palestinian ambulance crews from reaching him, leaving him to bleed on the ground. The youth later succumbed to his wounds.

Jenin Raid

In the town of Kfar Dan in the north of Jenin, Israeli occupation forces engaged in fierce clashes with resistance fighters after storming the town in the early hours of Monday.

The official Resistance News Network (RNN) shared footage of numerous explosions which took place in the town in the early hours of Monday.

RNN cites local sources as saying that Israeli forces blew up a car belonging to the Kafr Dan Brigade and also set fire to several other vehicles.

Last Tuesday, Israeli forces stormed the town and camp of Jenin with dozens of military vehicles accompanied by drones, and bulldozers used to destroy homes, roads and other infrastructure. The military withdrew after 46 hours, only after killing 12 Palestinians, including a doctor, a teacher, and four youths.

WAFA reported that Israeli forces stormed the southern part of the town, spurring confrontations with its residents.

Soldiers attacked the residents with stun grenades and tear gas bombs, and two youths, aged 17, were detained during the clashes.

Earlier on Monday, illegal Jewish setters attacked shops and their owners in the town of Sebastia, northwest of Nablus.

The mayor of the town, Muhammad Azem, said the settlers forced the owners to close their stores.

The attack was carried out in full view of Israeli soldiers, reported WAFA.
