The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry says a teenager has been shot dead and another is critically hurt by Israeli troops’ gunfire in the West Bank.
The ministry says 15-year-old Mohammed Salim was shot in the back in the town of Azzun, near Qalqilya, and a second teen is critically hurt after being shot in the chest.
The Israel Defense Forces does not immediately comment on the circumstances.
The Rescuers Without Borders emergency service says troops opened fire at Palestinians hurling Molotov cocktails in the town.
