(MENAFN - Arab News) Jerusalem: an autopsy was due to be performed on wednesday on the body of a palestinian teenager killed last month in an incident that a human rights group said might constitute an israeli war crime.

palestinian medics have said that nadim nuwara 17 and muhammad abu thahr 16 were shot dead by israeli troops using live ammunition on may 15 as they took part in an anti-israel demonstration in the occupied west bank.

the israeli military said its forces fired only rubber-coated bullets that day and that an investigation of their deaths was still under way.

both teenagers were buried the day after they were killed. palestinian officials said an autopsy would be performed on nuwara's body on wednesday at his family's request.

palestinian pathologist saber al-aloul said us and danish pathologists would be present at the autopsy in the palestinian institute of forensic medicine in the west bank town of abu dis. he did not say if or when results would be published.



an israeli physician will also attend israeli and palestinian officials said.

video from security cameras on palestinian properties close to the scene of last month's protest showed the two teenagers falling to the ground in separate incidents apparently shot despite posing no immediate threat to israeli forces.

new york-based human rights watch in a report published on monday and entitled 'killing of children apparent war crime" said the israeli military's assertion that its forces had not fired live ammunition does not stand up to scrutiny.

israeli defense minister moshe yaalon has suggested the surveillance video might have been doctored. the human rights groups that distributed the material denied that.

the demonstration that thahr and nuwara attended was at times violent with palestinian youths hurling stones at the israeli forces. but the security cameras suggested there was no stone throwing going on when the two teenagers were shot.
