Palestinian teen said killed by Israeli fire during raid in northern West Bank

The Palestinian Authority’s official news agency reports that a 13-year-old was killed by Israeli fire during a raid in the northern West Bank.

He is named as Moatasem Nabil Abu Abed, 13, of Qabitya. The report says two other young men were also wounded, one seriously, during confrontations between soldiers and Palestinians in Qabitaya, and that the first Israeli forces to enter the town did so in vehicles bearing Palestinian license plates.

The Israel Defense Forces says the Israeli military said a number of Palestinian gunmen had shot at its troops, who returned fire.
