Israeli army shot dead Palestinian youth


RAMALLAH: Israeli forces shot dead a 17-year-old Palestinian in the occupied West Bank as Israel claimed an operation to demolish the home of a Palestinian suspected of carrying out a recent attack.

Israel’s army in a statement said its troops along with border police had entered the village “to demolish the floor of the residence” in which Muhammad Jaradat resided.

Earlier, the Palestinian Health Ministry said early that Mohammed Abu Salah was killed in the village of Silat al-Harithiya near the flashpoint town of Jenin in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Israel alleged Jaradat and others had carried out the recent fatal shooting of an illegal Jewish settler in the occupied West Bank.

According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, 10 people were wounded as Palestinians clashed with the Israeli teams trying to demolish the home. 

Israel regularly destroys the homes of individuals it accuses of carrying out attacks on Israelis in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The practice, which often fuels tensions, has been condemned by critics as a form of collective punishment. 

Israeli and Palestinian estimates indicate there are about 650,000 settlers living in 164 settlements and 116 outposts in the occupied West Bank, including in occupied Jerusalem.

Under international law, all Jewish settlements in occupied territories are considered illegal.

Israel occupied the West Bank in the Six-Day War of 1967 and exercises full administrative control across much of the territory, where more than two million Palestinians live.

Israeli colonization of the occupied West Bank and annexed East Jerusalem has continued under every Israeli government since 1967.
