Azza teen dies of Israel gunshot wounds

Jan. 23, 2013 2:43 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 24, 2013 8:41 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A teenager shot by Israeli forces during clashes in Bethlehem last week died on Wednesday, the boy's family said.

Salih al-Amarin, 15, from Azza refugee camp, was shot in the head Friday during clashes in Bethlehem's nearby Aida camp, leaving him critically injured, a Ma'an reporter said.

Al-Amarin was taken to the Arab Society Hospital in Beit Jala, where medics said he was in a critical condition. He has been on life support since the incident.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not return a call seeking comment at the time.

Last Tuesday, 17-year-old Samir Ahmad Abdul-Rahim was the fourth Palestinian shot dead by Israeli forces in less than a week.

He was shot four times by Israeli soldiers in Budrus, near Ramallah.
