Palestinian teen 'mistakenly' shot dead in West Bank
(MENAFN- The Journal Of Turkish Weekly) A Palestinian teen was shot dead and four others were injured, the Palestinian health ministry confirmed in a statement on Tuesday, after Israeli forces "mistakenly" shot at them during clashes in the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli army said they fired after Palestinians allegedly threw Molotov cocktails and stones at Israeli vehicles.
The army, however, confirmed that all of those shot, including 15-year-old Mahmoud Badran, were bystanders during the incident despite earlier reports that they had been involved.
Three Israelis were lightly injured in the incident near the Beit Ur al-Tahta village, near the West Bank city of Ramallah.
Palestinian news agency Ma''an quoted unnamed local sources saying that Badran and other injured Palestinians were travelling in a car nearby when Israeli soldiers fired at their vehicle.
