18-year-old Palestinian said killed in clashes with IDF near Hebron

According to Palestinian media reports, 18-year-old Obeida Akram Jawabrah was shot and killed by the Israel Defense Forces tonight near al-Aroub Refugee Camp near Hebron.

The circumstances that led to Jawabrah’s death were not immediately clear. But it appeared to be related to an incident where Palestinians allegedly shot at Israeli troops close to a junction near the entrance to the refugee camp.

Some 22 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since hostilities began between Israel and Hamas last Monday. The Israeli army said several were attempting to commit terror attacks, while others were shot by Israeli soldiers during violent clashes.
