A Palestinian teenager was shot and killed by IDF troops in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank early Tuesday, Palestinian security and medical officials said.

According to Israeli reports the teenager threw an explosive device at the troops who responded with live fire.

Palestinian officials named the youth as Yusuf Abu Zagher, 18, and said the incident appeared unrelated to Israeli operations in the southern part of the territory following the abduction and murder of three Israeli teenagers there.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
