Canada Global (Web News) Medical personnel and witnesses said that an Israeli operation in the occupied West Bank on Monday that resulted in conflicts with locals also resulted in the death of a 14-year-old Palestinian child.
Since Israel increased military sweeps in response to a string of street attacks in major towns last year, violence has increased in the West Bank, one of the regions where Palestinians seek independence.
During what witnesses claimed was a confrontation between Israeli forces and stone-throwers in the Dheisheh refugee camp, close to Bethlehem, the kid, according to Palestinian medical personnel, was shot and killed. It wasn’t immediately obvious whether he had participated.
According to the army, Palestinians attacked troops with rocks, Molotov cocktails, and homemade explosives. No information about Israeli casualties was available.
