Palestinian teen dies of wounds sustained in May clashes

A 17-year-old Palestinian dies, two months after he was wounded in the neck by Israeli gunfire during clashes near the city of Ramallah in the West Bank, Palestinian health authorities say.

The shooting occurred during one of numerous clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces during the 11-day war in May between Israel and Hamas, the fourth conflict since the terror group seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007.

A statement from Palestinian health authorities says Youssef Nawaf died after a May 14 gunshot wound in the neck damaged his spinal cord, leaving him in critical condition.
