Medics: Israeli army kills teen in Budrus clashes

Jan. 15, 2013 12:29 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 18, 2013 10:23 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian teenager on Tuesday during clashes in Budrus near Ramallah, medics said.

Samir Ahmad Abdul-Rahim, 17, sustained four bullet wounds to his head, chest and leg and died shortly after arriving at the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah.

The head of Budrus village council, Mohammad Murrar, said Israeli military jeeps approached the village high school during a raid. Students were leaving the school after taking final exams and threw stones at Israeli forces, Murrar told Ma'an.

Israeli soldiers responded with live ammunition, fatally wounding Abdul-Rahim, Marar said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said several Palestinians had damaged Israel's wall in Budrus "attempting to infiltrate Israel."

Israeli soldiers at the scene "responded immediately to secure the area and prevent infiltration," the army official told Ma'an.

She could not say whether Israeli soldiers used live fire and said the incident was under investigation.

The killing of Abdul-Rahim is the latest in a spate of fatal shootings by Israel's army.

Mustafa Abu Jarad, 21, was shot in the head on Monday in the town of Beit Lahiya, medics said, and later died from his injuries. Israel's military denied involvement in the incident.

Anwar Muhammad al-Mamlouk, 22, was killed by Israeli fire east of Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza on Friday, and another man was seriously wounded and taken to the Kamal Udwan hospital by paramedics.

Israeli military sources said that a group of Palestinians tried to damage the border fence and soldiers opened fire and hit a man in the leg.

Al-Mamlouk's brother Hani said he was in an outdoor area studying for an exam when he was killed.
