A Palestinian-American teenager was killed by Israeli security forces on Friday in the West Bank, Palestinian health officials said.

The Israeli military does not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The American-born Tawfik Hijazi was 17 years old, the boy’s uncle tells Reuters, adding that the incident occurred during clashes with the Israeli military that included stone-throwing by Palestinians.

The Palestinian official news agency WAFA says the youth had been killed by Israeli gunfire.
